Assessing authentic learning using performance tasks: Experience at Crescent Girls' School

This paper documents the implementation of the Integrated Curriculum for all the Secondary One students in Crescent Girls’, School involving three subjects, namely Science, Mathematics and Geography. The main objective of this programme is to allow the students to see the connections between natural and seemingly disparate bodies of knowledge and skills, and between students’, experiences and what they learn in school. Through the use of performance task, the students were engaged in authentic learning to assess their understanding of content knowledge, process skills in problem solving and creativity to address the task requirements. The paper also shares the assessment rubrics that the teachers had designed to evaluate the quality of the students’, work and how this was used to further refine the task for future implementation. Feedback and student reflections were gathered from the students and these have become essential resources in the school’,s continuing effort to improve student learning through alternative assessment approaches to teaching and learning.
