Ohio Performance Assessment Pilot Project (OPAPP)
OPAPP is a Race to the Top (RttT) funded program which is piloting performance-based assessments in Ohio as well as defining the nature and implementation of the tasks to be used as statewide test instruments. OPAPP participants include English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies and Career-Technical Pathways teachers in grades 3 through 12. For more information about OPAPP, click here.
Professional Learning Opportunity
Because of what we learned from the pilot, we are providing EVERYONE with the opportunity to learn what the participants in the pilot project learned through FREE professional learning around the state. The commitment is for five days. These sessions are set up to be delivered in a 2-day, 1-day, 2-day sequence for your convenience. The professional learning is a result of three years of piloting with real classroom teachers and is geared to providing teachers with information, time to work, time to collaborate and time to learn. The five-day workshop provides several large chunks of work time interspersed with hands-on, fun activities to help teachers write performance tasks. As a result of participating in this workshop, you will leave with a lesson that you can use in your classroom.
To sign up for one of these sessions, please log in to your safe account and register in STARS. Search Keywords: Performance-Based Assessment, Task Writing, or Performance Task.
