Performance Based Assessment

Proving knowledge by DOING.

What is Performance-based Assessment? 

Performance-based assessment is a method of testing skills in an environment that is realistic and true to how a person typically applies those skills. A great example of a common performance-based assessment is a driving test. What better way to determine if an individual has the right level of skills required to operate a vehicle on public streets than putting them behind the wheel? There isn’t one.  

A Better Way To Test

Many assessments only utilize multiple-choice or written testing techniques. Some experts question the ability of these methods to properly gauge skill level. To combat the perceived shortcomings of traditional testing methods, organizations can implement performance-based assessment. This method of testing requires candidates to apply their knowledge and demonstrate skill by “doing” as opposed to selecting the correct answer or explaining it in writing.

Efficient and Scalable

Historically, there hasn’t been an efficient means of creating and delivering performance-based assessment. Early adopters who didn’t have the benefit of existing performance-based assessment technology. They built it in-house leveraging existing resources, or spent considerable expense hiring experts. For most, building a technology foundation to deliver performance-based assessment falls outside of their core competency and performance-based assessment has been largely unattainable. That is, until now.
