  2. Every element (or steps) needs elaboration:
  • Brief explanation of the steps involved.
    Explain what to do in every steps shows analytical thinking which reflect how much you know about each step.

    If you can clearly articulate what you’ll do and what you expect the students to do shows maturity and competence in the transfer of knowledge as well as the skills to CREATE an authentic task that fulfills the need for the real situation.

A test (or examination) is an opportunity for you to work out the knowledge and skills in a real or authentic situation.
