Authentic Assessment

Artist Research Presentation

Authentic assessments allow students to apply newly acquired knowledge and skills, rather than simply relying on rote memorization. Using VoiceThread, an interactive and collaborative tool centered on media-rich presentations, students can present information to their peers, who then have the capability of adding commentary via text, audio, or video.

Evaluation and Group Presentation

Authentic assessments facilitate group work, including evaluation, interpretation, and presentation. When used in concert with peer-to-peer and group-to-group interaction, the assignments yield a deep understanding of course material.

Organizational Chart Assignment

Authentic assessments keep students engaged and actively learning by requiring students to focus on applying the concepts to complete meaningful task-based assignments. Authentic assessments allow students a creative outlet to demonstrate what they have learned, rather than simply asking students to recall basic information.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
