SD81020
Class Title:
Creating Performance Assessment Tasks with the Illinois Social Science Standards
Description:
Standards implementation requires new thinking about assessment. One of they key questions when building curriculum based on the standards is “how will we know students have learned it?” The current standards require students engage in content, disciplinary literacy practices and inquiry. Educators have identified the need to create assessments where students can demonstrate competency in these areas. This workshop will introduce educators to strategies to build classroom performance assessment tasks in civics aligned to the standards where students get opportunities to demonstrate what they are learning. Educators will walk away resources, tools, templates and strategies to create their own classroom performance assessment tasks in civics. Explicit connections will be made to the Danielson Framework for Effective Teaching. The workshop is based on The Center for Standards and Assessment Implementation Assessment Design Toolkit. It can be accessed via the following link: https://www.csai-online.org/spotlight/assessment-design-toolkit
