How authentic is your current assessment? How could you stretch or adapt it to make it more authentic?
This radar diagram toolkit helps you and others to explore your assessment according to different dimensions of authenticity. This representation can also then help you to consider ways to make your assessment more authentic.
The Excel spreadsheet gives you a worked example and an editable sheet to use. If you prefer to work on paper, the handout document can be printed and the final page used for drawing on the radar diagram.
