Performance-based tasks are activities designed to demonstrate student proficiency and can be a useful tool for evaluating progress towards mastery of artistic skills or standards. They are hands-on in nature, narrow in focus, and require students to engage in higher level and extended thinking. Performance tasks can also help direct and guide instruction. How can you design performance tasks that get to the essence of what students learn in your programs? What kinds of performance tasks are best suited for your artistic discipline? This process-based Institute will help you create performance tasks that are both aligned to your organization’s objectives and artistic discipline, and capture student learning and growth in your programs over time.
NOTE: Registration for this Institute will open on December 27, 2019.
