In this session, we’ll explore the potential of performance-based assessments to engage students in “authentic” applications of knowledge and skills, measure important learning goals, and support effective instruction. We’ll examine the 3 Ps of performance assessment – performance tasks, projects, and portfolios. We’ll review an assessment framework, a guide for planning more thoughtful student assessments. Finally, we’ll consider implementation suggestions and preview a variety of print and Internet resources to support the expanded use of performance-based assessments. Participants in this workshop will:

  • describe the “big picture” of how performance assessment fits into a standards-based system;
  • use a planning framework for selecting assessment methods for your classroom, school or district;
  • apply a variety of practical tools and templates for designing more authentic tasks for classroom, school or district levels;
  • review the use of criterion-based scoring tools (rubrics, performance lists) for evaluating, and enhancing, the quality of student products and performances;
  • identify print and Internet resources to support the expanded use of performance-based assessments
