DRAFTING ASSESSMENT CRITERIA – PRACTICAL GUIDELINES Here are some guidelines for designing assessment criteria: 1. Bear in mind that AC’s are statements that describe the standard of a performance . This means that every AC is a statement of standard and that all AC’s related to a particular task collectively describe the standard of performance required for the task. In assessment context such standards must be observable and measurable. Start with the task to be performed and write it down in a concise and clear statement indicating exactly what must be performed / done by the learners . E.g.: Submit a research report on a sports hero of your choice Analyse the task by: Identifying the verb / do-word, the noun or ‘’product’’-word /words, and the context in which the task is done, by underlining the verb and bolding the noun. What is left in the statement is the context in which the task should be done Submit a research report on a sports hero of your choice Verb – Submit Noun – research report Context – on a sporting hero Now, ask yourself the following question: What must my learners do to show that they can …. in this case …. submit a research report on a sports hero of their choice? This would result in a kind of a ‘’brainstorm’’ activity, informed by your subject matter expertise. Write down everything you think of in a list of ‘’Mini’’ performances or tasks that all contribute to the major task, e.g.: Access sources on a hero Tell the hero’s life story Write a draft report

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
