What is Performance Assessment?

What is Performance Assessment? | Implementing Common Core Standards in Special Education | Scoop.it
Performance assessments are real-world scenarios that reflect the ambiguity of real-world challenges. They require higher-order thinking and problem solving. They are concluded with authentic performance.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 2, 4:00 PM

One key part of the Common Core is performance assessments. One question many may have is just what is performance assessment. This post provides a number of descriptions of performance assessments including ones from ETS, five criteria from Wiggins and McTighe based on Understanding by Design and ASCD.

Performance tasks may include project-based learning, drawings, videos, and more.

There is also a discussion on four reasons to use performance assessment. They are:

* Personalized Learing

* Formative Assessment

* Competency Education

* Standards-based Education

For more information click through to the post.

Great visual! 

Denver Leigh Watson's curator insight, February 8, 8:43 PM

How do you individualize? Does a graphic like this guide instruction, curriculum, lessons or all the above?  Most teachers are visual learners, as are their students; wouldn't it be fun to have students create  personalized graphic like this to outline their own individualized pathway to learning?

9 Things I Think About Education and the Common Core | The ... | Implementing Common Core Standards in Special Education | Scoop.it

Then I started googling around, and my ignorance turned into confusion: The Common Core itself is little more than two lists — one for Mathematics and one for Language Arts — describing the knowledge and skills that children should be acquiring"

Beth Panitz, Ed.D.'s insight:

We must prepare our children for the 21st Century. These are the skills they will need. The standards emphasize higher level critical thinking skills. They include Speaking and Listening skills, which will be valuable in any career. Remember that many of the jobs of the 21st Century haven't been created yet. My son's job, writing apps for an iPhone, didn't exist when he was in high school!
