Abstract

Transformative Assessment is designed to help learners acquire mastery in the language field. This will help learners realize the significance of each assessment they will undergo. This assessment is different from traditional assessments since learners are given a series of outputs connected to their final activity. This research intends to analyze the efficacy of Transformative Assessment as a technique for enhancing the performance tasks of Grade 11 students in language subjects. The researchers conducted a pre-test to determine which competencies needed the Transformative Assessment Tool. After this, an intervention was conducted. To evaluate the efficacy of the transformative assessment, the researchers administered a post-test and employed a z-test to determine the difference between the outcomes. The result showed substantial discrepancies between the scores. Furthermore, the researchers conducted focus group discussions to gather feedback from the students and gain a deeper understanding of their perspectives on the transformative assessment process.
