I am teaching at a teacher institute in two weeks and I was putting together my presentations. My first title was “Using Technology for Authentic Assessment”. Then I looked at some definitions of authentic assessment. One of the ones I found was “Assessment that fits meaningful, real- life learning experiences”. Another definition said, “Sometimes called direct or performance-based assessment.” They all said something about real-world and/or performance-based. So, for this institute, the main tool on which I intend to focus is ThinkLink. Do I have to change the name of the session? How can I explain ThinkLink as a technology authentic assessment tool?
