Impacts of authentic assessment on the development of graduate attributes
Authentic assessment activities are those that closely reflect real-life situations as opposed to those that are designed to merely test the acquisition of subject matter knowledge. Authentic assessments are especially important in higher education and continuing professional development programs, as these enable adult learners to relate learning with their work-life situations and address real-world problems. The role of authentic assessment activities is critical in the development of graduate attributes among learners as the development of graduate attributes needs to go beyond proficiency in disciplinary content to proficiency in the application of that knowledge to real-world challenges. This is possible with the careful integration of authentic learning activities and assessment tasks in the design of the learning experiences.
