judgment/decision-making tasks


Explanation:
Both of the previous answers have misunderstood the syntax of the Spanish: it's not "criterio de tareas", it's "tareas de criterio".

"Criterio" doesn't mean "criterion": in my opinion, it's "judgment".

criterion tasks


Explanation:
Sometimes an obvious translation can be the right one.

I don't believe "criterio" is referring to the subject's judgment, or indeed a test of this capability, but rather the tasks themselves, i.e., tasks designed to test learning ability measured with specific criteria (correct answers vs incorrect answers), and I think the list indeed shows just that: "Understands and answers yes/no questions", "understands and makes verbal associations", etc.

A criterion-referenced test is a style of test which uses test scores to generate a statement about the behavior that can be expected of a person with that score. Most tests and quizzes that are written by school teachers can be considered criterion-referenced tests. In this case, the objective is simply to see whether the student has learned the material. Criterion-referenced assessment can be contrasted with norm-referenced assessment and ipsative assessment.

Definition of criterion
A common misunderstanding regarding the term is the meaning of criterion. Many, if not most, criterion-referenced tests involve a cutscore, where the examinee passes if their score exceeds the cutscore and fails if it does not (often called a mastery test). The criterion is not the cutscore; the criterion is the domain of subject matter that the test is designed to assess. For example, the criterion may be "Students should be able to correctly add two single-digit numbers," and the cutscore may be that students should correctly answer a minimum of 80% of the questions to pass.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Criterion-referenced_test

Afterwards, a more complex criterion task was absolved by each group measuring whether the extracted c factor had predictive power for performance outside the original task batteries. Criterion tasks were playing checkers (draughts) against a standardized computer in the first and a complex architectural design task in the second study.

agree  Charles Davis: I think you're probably right. See the "Protocolo de tarea de Criterio de Destrezas Fonológicas" here: http://ut.suagm.edu/sites/default/files/uploads/Health-Scien... . But I would prefer "reference tasks".

  -> Thanks, Charles. Not sure about that though, there are two different kinds of "reference tasks" mentioned in my ref., "norm-referenced" and "criterion-referenced".
