, science festival exhibit presentations, and elementary science achievement.
Because valid and reliable inferences can be drawn from performance-based assessments
used with gifted children and with young children (Moon, Brighton, Callahan, & Robinson, 2005; Schappe, 2005; VanTassel-Baska, Johnson, & Avery, 2002), three performance-based assessments
were developed to measure knowledge and skill attainment in the units.
These early discussions of criterion-referenced testing as performance-based assessment
also suggest the connections between performance assessment and authentic assessment.
This sentiment, in addition to national and state mandates for performance-based assessment
, resulted in the creation of a more comprehensive evaluation instrument for the practicum experiences.
Department of Education faculty plan to expand the developmental performance-based assessment
continuum to include evaluation of the department's first year teachers' performance.
The researchers concluded that the performance-based assessment
used in this study was an effective process in identifying young gifted children.
We created a three-session program on assessment that included information on standardized tests, performance-based assessment
, and portfolios.
It explains concepts involved in tests and measurements; the use of technology; basic statistical concepts; and developing written tests and surveys and applications to physical fitness and activity assessment in youth and adults, assessment of sport skills and motor abilities, psychological measurements in sports and exercise, classroom grading, and performance-based assessment
Among these recommendations are that teachers should consider performance-based assessment
, not only traditional paper-and-pencil testing, design assessments themselves which match their objectives and instructional approaches, and use assessment which is formative, not just summative.

in identifying underrepresented populations of gifted students: A follow-up study of patterns and perceptions in identification and performance.
Marcellino crosses boundaries of education and business leadership to share results of a university classroom study, that team contracts and instructional monitoring help provide foundational support to emerging teams and their leaders; and, Brazer, Sparrgrove, and Garvey help us to understand that university instructors will increase their use of video and recording technology to improve performance-based assessment
if the instructors perceive the technology to have utility and ease-in-use.
