The Performance Assessment Resource Bank works to help states integrate performance assessments into their systems of assessment, develop the capacity of educators to effectively use performance assessment, and design policies to support these efforts. Their website features a large database that will be of interest to both educators and state leaders. Resources include:
- Over 500 K-12 performance tasks in math, English/language arts, science, and history/social studies
- Criteria for quality of rubrics, performance assessments, task, etc; as well as design templates and rubrics
- Tools to guide the process of teacher scoring of student work products
- Reports and papers highlighting state and district policies that support performance assessment & supporting research
The Performance Assessment Resource Bank is a project of the Understanding Language and Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning, and Equity (UL-SCALE) and the Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education (SCOPE) in collaboration with the Council of Chief State School Officers’ (CCSSO) Innovation Lab Network.
