Creating Performance Assessment Tasks with IL Social Science Standards
Start Date: Fri, Oct 25, 2019 8:30 am - 2:30 pm Workshop #: 191025W-1
Presenter(s): Mary Ellen Daneels

Room 9 - Professional Development Alliance, 2705 McDonough St., Joliet, IL 60436 (View Map)
Date Summary:   1 Session on 10/25/2019.  


Standards implementation requires new thinking about assessment.  One of the key questions when building a curriculum based on the standards is “how will we know students have learned it?”  The current standards require students to 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:

Participants will:
· Develop a common understanding of the key elements of performance assessments.
· Review research of best practices in performance assessment.  
· Learn how to create performance assessments based on Illinois Social Science Standards.
· Work collaboratively to create performance assessment tasks in civics.
