Overview:  Authentic assessment focuses on using "real-world" assessment as demonstration of mastery, as opposed to simply using multiple choice quizzes and exams to assess student mastery. Examples of "authentic" assessments could be producing multi-media projects, solving real-world problems, working directly for clients, and playing structured games that replicate authenticate but hard to structure real-world environments.
