Authentic Assessments

Authentic assessment is "a form of assessment in which students are asked to perform real-world tasks that demonstrate meaningful application of essential knowledge and skills." -- Jon Mueller

An authentic assessment usually includes a task for students to perform and a rubric by which their performance on the task will be evaluated.
