Potter, Barry S.; Ernst, Jeremy V.; Glennie, Elizabeth J. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2017
Educators understand that the current assessment-based standards are not going away anytime soon. Performance based assessments (PBAs) are an effective way of determining the level of student learning that has occurred in a lesson. While some multiple-choice tests tend to only assess the memorization of factual knowledge, PBAs focus on…
