Abstract

The purpose of this study is to build a multiple measurement in assessing online environment of project based learning (PBL). In PBL, students will experience the collaborative learning, multidisciplinary curricula, large blocks of time, teachers acting as facilitators to guide and advice, and more authentic forms of assessments. In this setting, students are guided in learning how to learn and empower them to take more responsibility of their own education in exploring and solving problems. According the great progress of science and technology, using advanced computers and internet can improve learners to overcome the approach of teaching and learning in PBL which solve the limits of time and space in the past as well as broaden the scope of interaction(LEE & Tsai,2004).Therefore, most educators agree with the teaching and learning strategy of PBL, and think that using the Internet as a basic instrument is the wave of the future(Barry et al,2001). In this setting, authentic assessments will be the great tools to assess the quality of learning progress and product which helps them to be more closely to reflect what they see and knew of the outside world. Thus, create a new approach assessment formats and process in the internet can be a positive tool for reflecting students' personal growth.
