Summary or Abstract : Although teaching methods have developed to include student choice, teaching on each student's individual levels, and making learning more meaningful, assessment methodologies have not kept pace. Students' motivation levels appear to diminish as many social studies teachers still use traditional assessment methods consisting of objective and essay style tests to evaluate student progress. The purpose of this qualitative action research study was to determine the effects alternative assessment have on students' motivation levels and self-efficacy. Seventy-two 7 th grade students participated in this study and engaged in a variety of assessment methodologies including oral testing, performance assessment, cooperative learning, product assessment, interactive lessons, and the creation of portfolios. Data collection and analysis were concurrent, and examined for emergent themes and patterns. Data were further categorized, coded, and compared across methods of data collection: observations, survey data, individual and focus group interviews, and students' work. Three themes surfaced regarding self-efficacy: sense of confidence, sense of accomplishment, and freedom of choice. Five themes emerged regarding motivation: enjoyment, challenge, relevance, receiving immediate feedback, and working cooperatively. The research suggests that motivation levels and self-efficacy reached higher levels when students were engaged in alternative assessment. Results of this research may promote the incorporation of alternative assessment techniques into social studies curricula. Implementing alternative assessment will replicate real world situations and better prepare students to function at higher levels.
