Authenticity is an important characteristic of learning experiences and contributes to transfer of learning into practice. Maintaining authenticity in the face of changes in the eventual environment of practice can be challenging. This paper describes the evolution of an authentic assessment task in a teacher preparation course in response to changes in the program offering and in the wider educational environment. Lessons learned and prospective developments are discussed in light of the effectiveness of the evolution of the task in responding to the changing circumstances.
