Learning Activity

In general, a performance-based assessment measures students' ability to apply the skills and knowledge learned from a unit or units of study. Typically, the task challenges students to use their higher-order thinking skills to create a product or complete a process (Chun, 2010). 

Whilst performance-based assessments can vary, the basic characteristics are as follows:

  1. Complex
  2. Authentic
  3. Process/product-oriented
  4. Open-ended
  5. Time-bound
