Los Angeles County Office of Education Performance Task Development Project: A Case Study

By Sylvia Kwon, Tran Keys


This report provides insight into the Performance Task Development Project (PTDP), a partnership between the Building Educator Assessment Literacy (at WestEd) and the Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning, and Equity (SCALE), and its work with the Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE). PTDP focused on hands-on workshops that provided LACOE teachers with opportunities to deepen understanding of academic standards, developing standards-aligned assessment tools, and incorporating performance assessments as part of a continuous improvement cycle.

This report focuses on this work at Rowland Schools, through interviews and classroom observations, to learn more about teachers’ experiences in PTDP, the impact of participating in PTDP, and potential next steps.
