This one-day workshop explains performance-based assessments in relation to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Participants discuss the implications of performance-based assessments for English Language Arts (ELA) on classroom instruction and assessment. They review sample performance tasks, develop a template to create similar assessments, and learn strategies for implementation.
