| Common Error when Developing Tasks:
- Generating tasks with no input from stakeholders may lead to
narrowly designed tasks and the creation of tasks that are not
credible to others.
- Choosing tasks that do not:
- match the specific instructional intentions you wish to
- adequately represent the content and skills you expect students
- enable students to demonstrate their progress and capabilities
- Modifying an existing task and thereby changing its difficulty--making
it too easy or hard.
- Altering the task and thereby making the equipment and materials
typically used in these tasks unsuitable.
- Modifying tasks so they require more equipment, time, or expertise
than is available.
- Not reviewing the tasks for bias.
- Increasing the complexity of a task or simplifying it, so that
it can be used with younger or older children, without considering
the task's appeal or meaningfulness to students at different grade
