In this webinar, we’ll explore a set of practical and proven design tools for developing quality performance tasks based on Jay McTighe’s new LumiBook, Core Learning: Assessing What Matters Most. Such tasks provide more than simply another method for measuring learning—they embody the most important goals of the Standards, while engaging students in meaningful learning.
The Common Core and Next Generation Standards call for students to apply their learning in authentic ways—e.g., to “closely” read complex texts, develop and critique arguments, solve “messy” problems requiring sound reasoning and perseverance, and engage in scientific inquiry.
These goals demand concomitant assessments that call for more than making a selection from given answers in a selected-response format. Richer, more authentic tasks are needed.
