Authentic Assessment:
Assessment methods based as closely as possible to real world experiences are called authentic assessment. The student is observed in action and the instructor provides feedback.

Components of authentic assessment include:
  • Using real life/relevant activities.
  • Making it fun and tap into the students' interests.
  • Using rubrics to measure the standards being assessed.
  • Having students reflect on the process.
When using authentic assessments, a system is needed to create clear criteria for student performance. When provided assignments, a rubric establishes expectations.
Formative Assessment:
​​Formative Assessment is a range of formal and informal assessment procedures conducted by teachers during the learning process in order to modify teaching and learning activities to improve student attainment. Teachers check for understanding along the way and student performance guides their decision making about future instruction. Formative assessments provide feedback to students so they can improve their performance.
