Performance-based Assessment for the Classroom: Practices for

Promoting and Measuring Student Learning

with Dr. Tonya Moon from University of Virginia

November 4, 2017

In Person or Virtual Workshop


Workshop Description:

Join the Martinson Center either in person or virtually for a 1 day workshop on Performance-based Assessment for the Classroom! In this session, we’ll explore the potential that performance-based assessments have to engage students in the application of content knowledge and skills in authentic situations. We’ll look at principles for effective performance assessments and explore a framework to facilitate the planning and developing of effective assessments. We’ll also examine how to develop high-quality scoring rubrics that align with performance assessments or as stand-alone rubrics that can be used with general classroom tasks.


By day’s end, participants in this session will:

· understand where and how performance assessment and scoring rubrics fits within the Virginia standards-based system;

· be able to use an assessment planning framework for designing or modifying performance assessments and scoring rubrics for classroom, school or district uses;

· be able to use rubrics for student feedback and learning;

· be able to incorporate the use of scoring rubrics in student evaluation and grading.
