Abstract

Assessing students' knowledge has always been a difficult task, especially in today's climate of standards driven curriculum. Challenges to educators include meeting content standards, assessing students' progress and focusing on diverse learning styles, as well as preparing students for work and life beyond schools. To meet these challenges, educators need to employ more authentic instructional approaches than the traditional knowledge-based curricula. However, this may result in educators becoming burdened with creating multiple assignments. Using innovative student-generated projects as models for assessment, the authors will demonstrate their successful and easily implemented strategy for meeting these demands. Furthermore, the authors will discuss the creative process of developing and implementing this strategy for the classroom.
