CWRA+ uses Performance Tasks to assess critical-thinking skills. These tasks deliver problem-based assessment by challenging students to address real-life issues. Performance-based assessments, such as CWRA+, challenge students to demonstrate skills, rather than to simply recall information. Students need to be able to analyze and evaluate information, solve problems, and communicate effectively. Students must be able to access, structure, and use information rather than just accumulating facts.
