Using Performance Tasks Effectively in the Mathematics Classroom

Explore performance-based assessments in relation to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) with a focus on the eight mathematical practices. Participants discuss the implications of performance-based assessments on classroom instruction and assessment. They review sample performance tasks, develop a template to create similar assessments, and learn strategies for implementation.

OUTCOMES:

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

• Apply strategies to create and evaluate performance-based assessments.

• Use the sample performance tasks as a model for creating performance-based assessments.

• Use student samples as a model to evaluate student work.

TARGET AUDIENCE:

9–12 Educators

NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS: 30

NUMBER OF DAYS: 1
