A course or subject area in which I can see myself using performance assessment is . . .
Bar and Café Management – for HRM students.
I have decided to present my own version of one traditional assessment task and two authentic tasks in a Bar and Cafe Management class. The traditional assessment will be used to evaluate the basic skills and knowledge in the subject. The first authentic task will cover the learning from prelims to midterms of a Bar and Cafe Management class while the second will culminate all the learning activities.
All tasks for the entire course are planned and created to support the succeeding stages of the learning process.
TRADITIONAL ASSESSMENT (Task 1): will be used to evaluate all low order skills such as knowledge of all the basics in bar and cafe management.
ALTERNATIVE ASSESSMENT (Task 2.1): A number of formative assessments will be used to allow students to explore new ideas, collaborate with each other, to criticize the work of others, and to re-do their own works (e.g. inventing new beverage mixes) until they come up with products that will sell in the market. Several meetings will involve students reflecting on their work and improving them.
ALTERNATIVE ASSESSMENT (Task 2.2): When things are all set, the integrative assessment comes next. The class will work as a group and show a culminating presentation of all their improved products to a group of assessors. Assessment tools that contain the criteria for grading will be given to each of the assessors.
