Reflection: Performance Tasks You Tell Me - Section 3: Extend Understanding


The performance task is more about student rationale than the 'right answers.'  There really are no 'right' and 'wrong.'  I am really looking to see if kids can explain and support their decisions about their examples and non examples.

This will become increasingly more important.  The Common Core assessments will be more open ended than we've seen in the past decade.  Training the kids to move away from right and wrong to justifiable is going to have to start in kindergarten.
