Knowledge, Learning, Community

This is just a short post but I liked the example of authentic assessment. "Authentic assessments are evaluations of student learning that use real-world tasks or performance-based assessments in authentic contexts, often presented to public audiences." Some thoughts: first, the outcomes of these real-world tasks can and should be used to produce a public portfolio that can be assessed directly by prospective employers (they will use AI to evaluate large numbers of portfolios to select ideal candidates). Second, an issue that emerges is how much time the public interviewees and audiences have, so the projects need (in my view) to address actual community needs, not merely exercises, and be actually implemented.
