There is a strong push to incorporate authentic assessments into teacher preparation coursework as preservice teachers often have difficulty applying the information they learned in their education coursework to realistic K-12 dilemmas. These assessments focus on measuring application of knowledge within the educational contexts they naturally occur rather than just focusing on the preservice teachers’ mastery of course content. The capabilities of wikis to promote collaborative problem solving around complex issues, include a large variety of media formats, and track contributions to the site lend themselves well as a platform for authentic assessment. The purpose of this paper is to describe a case-based authentic assessment practice within a wiki environment used within preservice special education courses.
