What is it: Performance assessment is an approach to determine student learning that does not rely upon [lower order skills, such as] multiple-choice tests as the sole measure of student learning. Performance-based assessment operates on the premise that a [learner] experiences a more complex task when asked to perform, create, or construct an answer rather than to [simplistically] choose the correct answer among a small set of possible answers. [Jaquith, Martin, & Johnston, 2014 ]. Performance assessment can also refer to judgements about performance or competence made in relation to specified criteria of how a group of students has worked together (see Group Projects).
