Authentic Assessment Toolbox
The Authentic Assessment Toolbox is a how-to on creating authentic tasks, rubrics and standards for measuring and improving student learning. Inside, you will find chapters on what authentic assessment is, who do it, how to do it, standards, tasks, rubrics, and examples.
One usable method of assessment is for teachers to provide a rubric for student use and for both formative and summative assessment purposes. Another is to provide some type of graphic organizer. On this website you will find a collection of assessment rubrics and graphic organizers that may be helpful to you as you design your own.
