Building and Using Authentic Performance Tasks for Science and Math

Recorded on March 17, 2020

Engaging educators in the development of authentic performance tasks in math and science can deepen understanding of the standards and build capacity to assess student learning more profoundly.

By analyzing student work to revise and refine performance tasks, educators hone their ability to elicit and evaluate standards-aligned evidence of student learning.

In this archived webinar, learn how teams in Los Angeles County are collaborating to build teacher capacity to create and use performance assessment as part of the teaching and learning process.
