Criterion Referenced Assessments

Criterion-Referenced AssessmentCriterion-referenced assessments are designed to provide a measure of performance that is interpretable in terms of a clearly defined and delimited domain of learning tasks or whether or not a student can do something such as a driver’s test.  

Strengths – Criterion-referenced assessments are graded objectively. There no need for designing time because rubric is already developed. 

Weaknesses- These assessments have the possibility of not measuring the intended criteria and have no room for individuality. 

Role of Technology – Simulations can play a role in criterion-referenced assessments.
