Chapter 5 introduces alternative assessment and explains how it supports learning. While explaining the meaning of alternative assessment, other terms which can cause confusion have also been clarified. Special attention is given to self and peer assessment, as it can be used together with many different types of assessment strategies. A number of assessment strategies which are related to alternative assessment and commonly used in the classroom are discussed, including portfolio, learning contract, concept map, project, exhibition, interview and observation. To help teachers make good decisions, a number of principles for selecting assessment strategies are expounded.
