Performance-based assessments allow classroom teachers an alternative to traditional multiple-choice tests. We often use fill-in-the bubble assessments in education to determine the readiness of students. However, in the 21st-century workplace, these types of tests fail to truly prepare students. How many times in the real world are we called upon to take a multiple-choice test? In the real world, we are called upon to prove our merit through performance-based assessments, displaying our 21st-century skills. We should be preparing students for this in the classroom. Performance-Based Assessment for 21st-Century Skills makes the argument that teachers should use performance-based assessments in the classroom. It guides the educator step by step to show how he or she can create performance-based assessments for students, including what they look like, teaching students how to create them, setting the proper classroom environment, and how to evaluate them.
