DEFINTION
Traditional assessment
are the conventional methods of testing
which usually produce a written document,
such as quiz, exam, or paper. Standardized
tests, most state achievement test, and high
school graduation examination are also
examples of traditional assessment.
ADVANTAGES
Traditional assessment
Easy to score; Teachers can evaluate students
more quickly and easily.
Less time and easier to prepare; easy to
administer
Objective, reliable and valid
DISADVANTAGES
Traditional assessment
Provides students limited options to demonstrate
what they have learned, usually limited to pencil
and paper tests
Assesses only the lower level thinking/cognitive
skills: focuses only on the students ability to
memorize and recall information
Teacher-structured: teachers direct and act as
evaluators; students merely answer the
assessment tool.
DEFINTION
Authentic Assessment
An assessment that is performance-oriented, the
thinking goes, with the assessment that aims to
measure not only the correctness of the response,
but also the thought process involved in arriving at
the response, and that encourage students to
reflect their own learning in both depth and
breadth, the belief is that instruction will be
pushed into a more thoughtful, more reflexive,
richer mode as well.
