I have no idea what a performance based assessment is. I may have many experiences with performance based assessments, but since I don't know what one is, I can't answer this question. No idea. No idea.
A perfomance based assessment is a way of assessing the student's knowledge of a topic while applying the concepts and perfoming a task. The benefits are that some students may be better at perfoming a task.
A performance based assessment consists of "grading" a student based on observing them as they complete a hands-on activity, either individually or within a group. I've performance based assessed as students complete chemistry labs. Some students simply perform poorly on written tests and performance based may be a better indication of their skills. Performance based can be challenging to guage.
A performance based assessment is a means of seeing what the students understand of some material through having them put it into practice and apply it to some real world or lab scenario. Projects, unscripted lab exercises, and the like, I feel all qualify as performance based assessments; and I try to do them often throughout the year.
A performance based assessment is a method by which a student can apply the knowledge learned to hands-on activities, conceptual challenges, inquiries, etc. I've developed many assessments, but I more often adapt developed assessments to fit the students, equipment, lab setting, etc. Benefits, having students critical think in a friendly social environment creates a bond with the material and learning. Drawbacks, time.
PBA a test that measures/observes the skills that students are learning in your class (and others)
I m not exactly sure of performance based assessment and their benefits. I know that hands on assignments helps slow learners see the objectives.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
