Measuring Student Understanding Series: Day 2 – Developing Performance Tasks

The instructional shifts of the Common Core are built through an instructional cycle that develops from identification of the performances for targeted standards and the development of related performance tasks. (In mathematics, those shifts include coherence, focus, and rigor; in literacy, they are building knowledge through complex rich nonfiction and informational text, reading and writing evidence grounded in text, and regular practice with complex text and academic vocabulary.) In this session, participants develop performance tasks and identify the underlying indicators of performance to inform instruction.

OUTCOMES:

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Develop performance tasks.
  • Ensure alignment of tasks to the CCSS.
  • Identify the indicators of performance.
  • Explore implications for instruction.
