|Introduction and Key Ideas:
- Tasks translate the assessment targets into performance exercises.
- Tasks relate the instructional intents, including the content
and skills that should have been covered in the lesson(s), with
the questions that measure student outcomes.
- Tasks incorporate input from local, district, state, and national
stakeholders to reflect shared goals in performance exercises.
- Tasks provide the context for measuring multiple goals. They
can be interdisciplinary in nature, and may be based on real-world
tasks. Regardless of their makeup, tasks must enable students
to demonstrate what and how much they have learned.
- Tasks provide specific information about the administration
process, the task questions, and the scoring criteria that will
background information about tasks.
