We will be presenting 99 Cent Science 8:15 am Saturday at the www.sdsea.org "ScienceTrek: Next Generation Science Conference" at Grossmont College La Mesa, CA see link above for more information.
I will also be presenting at 9:15 with Marilin Escalante and Jennifer Jackson. Concept and Performance tasks. Alien Blood lab
Concept task = an activity that reviews and front loads the material for the assessment (performance task)
A Performance task is one of the 6 types of assessment questions which will be on the future CA state assessment created by SMARTER BALANCED ASSESSMENT (SBAC).
It is a good idea to start using performance tasks as assessments in your classroom.
