Performance tasks should be learning opportunities for students and require students to apply their knowledge and skills in a meaningful way to strengthen their mathematical understanding. In this module, you will work through the process of designing a performance task and creating the criteria for a rubric in order to gauge student understanding.
Understand characteristics of high quality performance tasks
Construct high quality performance tasks
Construct rubrics and criteria to assess student achievement on performance tasks
Understand that a performance task can serve as an excellent assessment in a mathematics classroom.
Ability to write high quality mathematics performance tasks.
Ability to construct rubric criterion to measure student performance on these tasks.
Acknowledge that performance tasks are both an opportunity for continued student learning and high quality assessment within a mathematics classroom.
