Performance Assessment Defined

     A performance assessment is a

    students to show what they can do
    with the knowledge they have
    acquired.
    Performance Assessments

   What are some examples of
    Performance Assessment Types?
     Presentations
     Demonstrations
     Creating Products
     Case Studies
     Activity: “Identify the Type”
    Performance Assessments

   Why use Performance Assessments?
       Activity: “Name the Benefits”
           Developing a Quality
         Performance Assessment
1.   Identify Learning Target(s)
        Answers the question: ”What should my
         students know or be able to do upon
         completion of this lesson/unit/course?”
2.   Identify the Performance Assessment
     type that best fits your needs
        Choose something that will provide a
         good measurement of the learning
         targets you have chosen
           Developing a Quality
         Performance Assessment
3.   Create your Performance Assessment
        Use the Rubric For Performance Assessments
        Base on Learning Targets
4.   Evaluate your Performance Assessment
     using the Rubric for Performance

Activity: “Evaluate Performance Assessments”
                          Rubrics
   What is a rubric?
         A rubric defines the features of work that
         constitutes quality. It is the mechanism for
         judging the quality of student work.

   Why use a rubric?
        Teachers –
         Rubrics are a good way to help teachers define complex learning targets
         and ensure that judgments about student work are consistent over time,
         between assignments, and with colleagues.
        Students –
         Rubrics help students by orienting them to what it is they are expected
         to accomplish, efficiently leading them along the continuum from
         beginner to expert, and helping them be able to explain why products
         and performances they create are good or not.
“Students can hit any target that is sufficiently
 clear and that holds still for them.” –
 (Creating & Recognizing Quality Rubrics, p. 4)
     Creating a Quality Rubric

1.   Consider Learning Targets and Create
     Criteria
2.   Determine the Levels of Achievement
3.   Create Descriptors for each criterion
4.   Use Rubric for Rubrics to evaluate
     your rubric

Activity: ”Evaluate Rubrics”
Performance Assessment for You

Directions:
1. Create 3 Learning Targets for one
    competency from the blueprint you were
    given
2. Design a Performance Assessment based
    on the Rubric for Performance Assessments
    and your Learning Targets
3. Design a Rubric for your Performance
    Assessment using the Rubric for Rubrics
    and making sure it’s based on your
    Learning Targets
        Evaluation Time!

 Evaluate their Performance Assessment
  and Rubric using the Rubric for
  Performance Assessments and Rubric
  for Rubrics
 Discuss +/- of PA and Rubric
 Return Assessments and Rubrics along
  with Evaluations
