Ohio's 'Grand Experiment' in Performance Assessment:
A How-To for States and Districts
This event took place on Monday, March 31, 2014, 2 to 3 p.m. ET.

Content provided by:

The Ohio Department of Education has created a project that uses curriculum-embedded performance to encourage and measure deeper learning. The Ohio Performance Assessment Pilot Project uses Learning and Assessment Tasks to:

• Help students learn and apply skills in multiple contexts,
• Prepare them for the state's next-generation assessment program, and
• Train hundreds of teachers to evaluate student work, use the results to improve instruction, and create their own learning tasks.

This webinar will show how the OPAPP dyad system blends learning and assessment into unified tasks. We will also discuss the teacher training components of the project, as well as how curriculum-embedded performance assessment helps students acquire and demonstrate the skills needed to be truly college and workplace ready.
