Actually, traditional assessment has been criticized for focusing on the limited range of skills taught in the classroom which are significantly different from what the student will face in the real world. Actually there are many types of authentic assessment tools that are intended to increase students’ engagement and make learning more relevant such as group work in which team members engage in collaborative learning. Authentic assessment provides a measure by which student’s academic growth can be gauged over time to know the true depth of student learning and understanding which allows for a greater demonstration of students’ skills and performance. Authentic assessment is designed to compare students’ performance against learning task standards which is necessary to maintain authenticity.The importance of authentic assessment can also be highlighted through what I have mentioned previously in the section of developments that led to the emergence of authentic testing. Authentic assessment is significant because it suits the changing interface of society, job-market, testing culture as well as education. Thus, we can conclude that authentic assessment’s significance comes from the fact that it emerged due to the need for its establishment as an alternative to traditional methods that are questionable and inadequate as many critics suggested. Authentic assessment can be visualized as an answer to many problems faced by teachers who want to prepare their students for real life challenges and not to stick to the old-fashioned ways of teaching that broaden the gap between what is taught in classroom and what they will encounter in reality.
