The need for assessment transformation has been amplified by the introduction of ChatGPT and the rise of AI technology. It has become more and more imperative that assessment should go beyond a numerical grade and provide an objective, holistic, qualitative reflection of students' performance and progress. Authentic assessment is one of the best approaches to address this goal, by focusing on measuring students' success in skill-relevant and real-life situations.
