benefits of performance based assessment
Benefits of Performance-Based Assessment
  • Targets high level skills; performance-based assessments require students to operate at higher levels of application, synthesis, analysis and evaluation
  • Allows for students to show depth and complexity through task assignment
  • Conveys higher level expectations for student performance
  • Allows the teacher to collect data and monitor student performance over time
  • Complements standardized testing through student demonstration
  • Works more efficiently as a tool to examine students’ mastery in an area
components of authentic assessment
Components of Authentic Assessment
  • Measurements are essential, not needlessly intrusive, arbitrary, or contrived to “shake out” a grade.
  • Measurements are enabling, constructed to point the student toward more sophisticated use of skills or knowledge.
  • Measurements are contextualized, complex intellectual challenges, not atomized tasks corresponding to isolated outcomes.
  • Measurements involve the student’s own research or use of knowledge, for which content is a means.
  • Measurements assess student habits and repertoires, not mere recall or plug-in skills.
  • Measurements are representative challenges, designed to emphasize depth more than breadth.
  • Measurements are engaging and educational.
  • Measurements involve somewhat ambiguous (ill-structured) tasks or problems.

- Wiggins, 1989

1.Important idea: The important idea of the story was a miser who got a lot of money and buried it. Then a thief just happened to find the gold and stole it.

2.“A possession is worth no more than the use we make of it.”: I think it means if something is yours and you never use it, don’t hide it or someone just someone may steal it and never-ever in your life return it ever again.”

3. Idea of change: “It tells us change may be randomly. It can be randomly because the miser never new someone may be stealing his money.”

4. New title for the story: “A good title for this story would the The Mad Miser because the miser was mad when he found out someone stealed his money. Also, the miser was mad with the stranger.”

  • Main Idea: Zhanna was worried about her husband. Her neighbor widow died and her children were sleeping next to her body.
  • “They had been covered carefully with the mother’s threadbare shawl and with her dress.”: Her kids were covered by a piece of fabric and her dress.
  • Change: The neighbor was barely alive to dead. Zhanna’s neighbor did not live that long in the story.
  • Title: So Little Time, So Much Love. Because Zhanna’s neighbor didn’t live long in the story, but she had so much love.

  • Important Idea: The person who wrote the poem is picturing a world without racism.
  • “It’s going to be a sad song, brother, Because we don’t know the tune, And it’s a difficult tune to learn.”: Although it will be strange to learn, it is well worth it.
  • Change: Since the author states “There is no such thing as a black tune, There is no such thing as a white tune, There’s only music, brother,” the author wants us to end racism. Ending racism would change the world.
  • Title: No Colors, Just Music. I choose this title because the author describes unity without color.

I also choose this title because it describes

music without color.

  • Formulate responses to the question: How would you help this student reach the next level of performance?

Persuasive Writing: 3rd GradeHow would you help this student reach the next level?
  • “Students in my grade should be required to read this book a lot. Students should read this book a lot because it can help them learn if you get something and you don’t use it what was the reason of buying it. Also to teach you that you shouldn’t yell and scream at someone when you get very, very, very mad! Finally, the last reason is never hide any of your things where someone can see it. These are my three reasons why students should read this book a lot.”

Persuasive Writing: 4th GradeHow would you help this student reach the next level?
  • “Yes, I think “Poor People” should be required reading for all the students in my grade because the story “Poor People” is about a person named Zhanna caring for her neighbor and when other kids in my grade read this story they’ll probably learn about caring and helping others. Another reason why I think the story “Poor People” should be read by all the kids in my grade because it demonstrates an example of showing kindness, caring, and love. If kids in my grade read this story they can realize they can help others by caring, showing kindness, and loving one another. More reasons why kids in my grade should be required to read “Poor People” because it helps the kids realize that if they don’t help one another they’re not caring and that nobody won’t help them if they don’t help another person. That’s what I think about should kids be required to read “Poor People”.

Persuasive Writing: 4th GradeHow would you help this student reach the next level?
  • “I don’t think that the story “Poor People” should be read by all students in my grade. First, the story doesn’t teach you anything. It also isn’t very important. Second, the story isn’t very difficult and the readers can easily get bored. Also, it’s only about four pages long. Lastly, the story might cause sadness. It might because the widow died and Zhanna and her husband might not survive. Finally, I believe that the story “Poor People” should not be read by all students in fourth grade.”

  • The Chosen Poem

Do I think the poem, “Where the Rainbow Ends,” should be required for all students in my grade? Of course I do! This poem states that you should rather sing together than alone. Especially if you are different races. It teachers you that there is no such thing as a black tune or a white tune. It is just music. Don’t judge people by there color of there skin. We are all brothers and sisters. It also tells us that a tune is very hard to learn. If we work together, we can definitely do it. This poem will tell everyone in the world to be a family.

  • If I was the one who wrote that poem, it would be a story instead. It would be a story because there is a lot to talk about. This poem is going to be an Oscar. That is why I think all the children in my grade should be able to read this poem.
