18 Assessment Basics

How do you know that your students have learned what you intend? Assessment techniques that mirror the work done in the profession are frequently referred to as “authentic assessment.” Assessments that also serve as learning activities help to maximize the benefit for the time spent. But these can be challenging to implement in large enrollment classes.
