Performance-Based Assessment in Personalized Learning

Performance-based assessment requires students to demonstrate skills or knowledge learned, often through application in real-world scenarios. Activities or tasks associated with performance-based assessment often take place over multiple days or weeks and should challenge students to solve complex problems, complete a process, or create products. 

Teach to One Tasks

Teach to One: Math's performance-based Tasks help students understand how mathematics exist in their world. Tasks require students to work in groups over multiple days and apply skills to solve problems in real-world scenarios. Tasks culminate in a performance-based assessment in which students defend their work to, and solicit questions from, their peers.

Utilizing a project-based learning approach, Tasks require students to apply their knowledge to solve complex problems using real-world scenarios. Students work with the same teacher and group over seven non-consecutive sessions, culminating in a performance-based assessment. They are connected to specific skills that are part of each student’s personalized curriculum.

Before the task ever begins, the teacher needs to begin at the end, with the culminating performance-based assessment, then plan backwards meticulously to ensure that the instructions and lessons align to the skills that students need to develop.
