Abstract:

Challenge and expand students' abilities with multidimensional performance tasks!In this invaluable resource, science educators Elizabeth Hammerman and Diann Musial define a new vision for integrating science, mathematics, and language arts with instruction and assessment and encourage teachers to develop reliable processes for assessing both their teaching practice and student learning. This revised edition offers more than 20 performance assessments that promote student engagement. Each clearly articulated task correlates with current research and focuses on learning indicators linked to stat.
