Here is a bank of performance tasks for Grades 5 and 6, which is designed to enhance your repertoire of assessment strategies for evaluating student's skills. A performance task is a task that requires the student to construct a response, usually complex in nature, and requires higher order processing skills. Performance tasks may be individual or group oriented. Most of these tasks are short-term and can be done in a single or double lesson.
You can use them either "as are" or through adaption to your specific teaching/ learning context, thus ensuring valid and reliable assessment. These tasks may also serve as models when you design your own tasks.
