Discipline-Specific Assessment Methods

Assessment strategies are authentic in that they reflect the work of our disciplines and respect the integrity of epistemologies

Assessment tasks represent aspects of the actual work of our disciplines, adapted to the knowledge level of a particular group of learners. (e.g., providing text for analysis, case studies, data analysis, problem solving)
