Authentic assessment in a sport management degree granting programme: design elements for a sport and law course
by Hilary A. Findlay, Barb Bloemhof
International Journal of Sport Management and Marketing (IJSMM), Vol. 4, No. 2/3, 2008

Abstract: Calls for a greater curricular emphasis on critical thinking skills emphasise the need to consider how best to develop such skills but, equally important, how to assess their development. Where traditional testing methods (all too prevalent in our curricula) measure lower-level cognitive skills, authentic assessment measures higher-level cognitive skills (i.e., critical thinking skills). This article examines the design elements of an authentic assessment experience called Sport Court used in a sport management sport and law course. Sport Court has been used with classes ranging in size from 80 to 170 students.
