My early impression about this subject was that assessment is only about making traditional exams. So I prepared myself to read boring technical jargon and do hair-raising statistical analysis. However, after studying this subject, I found out that assessment is not all that. One of the realizations that I had about this subject is that making assessments can be creative.
Creative assessments can be done as a good support for the lesson. It makes learning fun and non-threatening for learners. It also stirs up their critical, analytical, and creative thinking—things that cannot be measured when done through traditional testing alone.
I have compiled a list of websites that I can use as future reference to making creative assessments.
