Title: CTR: TEACHER'S GUIDE TO PERFORMANCE-BASED LEARNING AND ASSESSMENT, A
Description:
This book by the educators in Connecticut's Pomperaug Regional School District 15 describes a school district's approach to teaching and learning that balances basic instruction with performance-based learning and assessment, using tools such as performance tasks, benchmarks, assessment lists, rubrics, and portfolios. Both literal understanding and application are important: Tasks are engaging and are well connected to the content, process skills, and work habits of the K-12 curriculum in many subject areas. Analytical assessment tools foster teacher dialogue, improve communication with students, encourage self assessment, and help parents support learning. Student performance in the district has improved, as measured by standard achievement tests, district measures, and the region wide student portfolio. 204 pages
