- Classroom-Based Assessment
- Classroom-based assessment is a method of assessing student performance by measuring academic and/or behavioral progress while the student participates in a typical school learning situation. Classroom-based assessments can give the rater (teacher) the opportunity to assess performance while the student is in a comfortable learning environment. For many students who struggle with time-based exams or performance anxiety, a classroom-based assessment can be a more informative assessment.
