Performance-Based Assessment


Real-World Student Assessment

Performance-based assessment (PBA), like all MS-CPAS assessments, is designed to measure students' mastery of competencies in the course curricula. In performance-based assessment, students encounter work-based scenarios similar to challenges they may face in the real world, providing instructors and outside evaluators a unique opportunity to see how students would perform in their actual fields.
