What is the benefit of project-based assessment over rote memorized learning?

Project-based assessment promotes deeper learning

Project-based assessment encourages students to engage with the material meaningfully and authentically, leading to deeper learning and a more thorough understanding of the concepts. Students hone their research skills and can also practice the application of theories in real-life situations. Project-based assessment can also measure the students’ collaborative skills while collaborating with others on a project and see how well they do as a team. These skills would be helpful later in the students’ professional careers.

Project-based assessment is more engaging

Projects are often more engaging and motivating for students than traditional forms of assessment, such as tests or quizzes, which can lead to increased student engagement and motivation. The idea behind a project-based value-added evaluation is to strengthen the understanding of the lesson plans by experiencing the subject matter in a relevant way. Students find their voice and learn to take pride in their work, boosting their morale, purpose, and self-confidence Students can immerse themselves into the creative side of learning, ask questions, get their doubts cleared through practical knowledge, and learn to love the subject. Students take ownership of their projects, reflecting on and celebrating their progress and accomplishments.

Project-based assessment promotes critical thinking skills

Project-based assessment requires students to think critically and solve problems, which can help to develop essential critical thinking skills. It encourages the students to practice research skills and think up innovative project ideas. The students’ research skills set, and by applying the theoretical portion of the lessons to practical projects, their understanding of the subject extends beyond memorizing it. When working on a project, students work methodically to overcome setbacks and failures until they complete it successfully.

Project-based assessment promotes creativity

Projects often involve a degree of creativity and allow students to express themselves more personally and meaningfully. This can particularly benefit students needing to improve in traditional assessment forms. Expressive educational areas, such as the arts, are especially an area where the creativity of a project can be largely left up to the endeavors of a student. Students apply creative thinking skills to innovate new product designs and project possibilities.

Project-based assessment is more authentic

Projects often involve real-world tasks and problems, which can make the learning experience more authentic and relevant for students. If students learn to take responsibility for their learning, they will form the basis for working with others in their adult lives. Students learn to methodically work around a project, tackle setbacks, and adjust the variables until they reach a favorable conclusion. It fosters engagement with future employers and career mentors, laying a solid foundation for the student’s future.

Overall, project-based assessment has several benefits encouraging deeper learning, increased engagement and motivation, developing critical thinking skills, and promoting creativity and authenticity as opposed to the more conventional rote memorization.

We at KAI Global School believe in implementing project-based assessments to help gain a well-rounded evaluation of our student’s abilities.
