And here is how we Develop Classroom Performance Assessments and Scoring Rubrics by Barbara Moskal.
Here are a few examples of Performance Assessments:
- Technology Project (Michael Klindt): Here is an example Performance Assessment narrative.

- Haiku (Anna Paakaula): https://docs.google.com/document/d/1rZclhLSxYsjzF7CT-g8icQXzSlb0LmVffDxYPEqM_F0/edit?usp=sharing
- WWII Propaganda (Tiffany Jensen):
Search the web for propaganda photos from WWII. You need at least 5. AT LEAST ONE should be from Dr. Seuss. Find photos that you enjoy and write what you think they symbolize and who their audience was (women, children, men, etc). The photos must be ones that are not popular, such as, Rosie the Riveter and Uncle Sam. You can use bullet points, or paragraph form. Use padlet to compile your pictures and text. http://www.padlet.com
Website examples to find photos:
- Civil Rights Movement (Jason Martorano):
While watching the short video on the story of Rosa Parks, create a list of the key vocabulary words depicted and take notes of any ideas you find pertinent to Rosa Parks’ story and the Civil Rights Movement (it may be helpful to pause the video, or jot down times in the video so you can quickly skip back to that section if you need help recalling something). After viewing the video, use your list of vocabulary words and key ideas to create a diagram using the “Inspiration” software and show me what you know.
You’ll be graded on two areas:
Use of vocabulary and knowledge of its meaning
Depiction of how key ideas are linked- Does your diagram show me that you understand how the vocabulary and key ideas are linked together?

- American Revolutionary War Timeline (Eve Hannah)
Construct a timeline of the American Revolutionary War. Begin with the Townshend Revenue Tax in 1767 and end with the adoption of the US Constitution in 1788. Plot ten important events in total on the timeline. Make sure to include the date (ie. July 4, 1776), the event and describe how the event was significant to the war. Make sure to use complete sentences and include relevant pictures.
Use timeglider for timeline maker. http://www.timeglider.com
Create a student login since it is free! With this program, you can rank how important the event was in history. Make sure to put the first and last event as 75 in order for it to be seen well. For uploading the pictures, you need to use the scale option in order for all of them to be seen on the timeline.
Rubric for Timeline: (Zoom will automatically be at 43. Zoom out to 36 to see majority of timeline.)
