Classroom-Based Assessment

Classroom-Based Assessments are the occasions when the teacher assesses the students in the specific assessment(s) that are set out in the subject or short course specification. Junior cycle short courses will have one Classroom-Based Assessment. Where feasible, teachers of short courses will participate in learning and assessment review meetings. 


Classroom-Based Assessment: Performance 

The culminating group performance should bring all the relevant skills together with evidence of improvement and commitment. Assessment of the performance is based on the features of quality as they apply to the student’s role in the performance. The assessment can take place in real time or in a combination of real time and viewing of the recorded performance. The performance allows the students to communicate these skills through their chosen discipline and the assessment should consider technical control, creativity, interpretation and teamwork.
