3 New Assessment in Education: A Proposition The tasks used to assess what the students know and can do need to reflect the tasks they will encounter in the world outside schools, not those limited to schools themselves.The tasks used to assess students should reveal how students go about solving a problem, not only the solutions they formulated.Assessment tasks should reflect the values of the intellectual community from which they are derived.Assessment tasks need not be limited to solo performance. Many of the most important tasks we undertake require group efforts.
4 New Assessment in Education: A Proposition Assessment tasks should think about more than one possible solution and one possible answer to a problem.Assessment tasks should have curricular relevance, but limited by the curriculum itself.Assessment tasks should require students to display a sensitivity to configurations or wholes, not simply discrete elements.Assessment tasks should permit the student to select a form of representation they choose to use to display what has been learned.
