This paper reviews the classroom practices and assessment tools that have been traditionally used and how they have evolved into more reliable and valid methods of evaluation. This paper also studies how active learning is far more successful than passive learning and the inherent value of performance assessments.

From the Paper:

"As its name implies, performance assessment requires students to demonstrate their grasp of particular ideas, concepts, and processes; it entails a tangible indication of learning objectives. This means students actively engage in the assessment procedure. What's more, evaluation is perceived as an opportunity to extend learning. Research indicates that active learning, as opposed to passive learning, is a most sound instructional custom. Another characteristic of performance assessment includes student participation in the creation of evaluation criteria. This generates a sense of individual responsibility for one's education. Naturally, responsible learners are those for whom education is most worthwhile and enduring."
