Performance Assessment Shells
Performance Assessment Shells present complete examples of performance assessment ideas, including a range of formative tasks and learning activities as wells as a summative, performance assessment task. Each Performance Assessment Shell suggests a variety of learner opportunities to succeed at real-world tasks requiring academic rigor, productive habits, and global awareness.
A Performance Assessment Shell is an instructional unit design tool that provides a structure for planning formative tasks, learning activities, and a summative task. Using a "shell" or template enables you to focus your creative energy on the content of your performance assessment more than the structure.
