Example text

In classrooms influenced by MI theory, the active and contextualized nature of assessments are a primary reason why the lines between curriculum and assessment blur (Baron, 1990). Students are often engaged in authentic work-solving problems and carrying out projects that have importance not just in the world of school but in the world outside of school. Further, because MI theory says that important cognitive activity is going on all the time, informal assessment needs to be taken as seriously as formal assessment.

Performance Tasks. Observation and documentation are essentially informal forms of assessment. Performance tasks are like the part of the driver's test that is conducted in the car. One is given a task to perform and is assessed on one's performance. Performance tasks are appropriate tools 2. , Baron, 1990; Frederiksen & Collins, 1989; Wiggins, 1989b). In the early grades, teachers ask students to read a text aloud. Children may grasp the narrative of a story or make conclusions about the characters simply from the illustrations.

The theory of multiple intelligences adds a theory about intelligence and the way the mind works that supports such educational beliefs and practices. MI provides a framework for individualizing education by helping us to understand the full range of students' intellectual strengths. Traditional schooling has focused on developing only math and language as cognitive abilities. Teachers who use a multiple intelligences framework recognize other abilities-musical, bodily-kinesthetic-as cognitive, too.
