In this new edition, internationally recognized assessment expert Kay Burke provides an updated, comprehensive six-step walk-through of how to create tasks that promote learning for all students and how to write rubrics linked straight to the requirements of state standards and the No Child Left Behind Act. Burke demonstrates how to build a performance task unit as the ideal curriculum framework for clustering standards and differentiating instruction within a single cohesive unit of study. She shows how to share checklists and rubrics with students for ongoing formative assessment and self assessment.

- Templates for all six steps

- Tools and tips to help teachers build their own tasks, checklists, and rubrics

- Theory, examples, applications, and explanations to help apply the six-step process

- Guidance for differentiating for special needs within standards-linked tasks

- Sample tasks, rubrics, and units

Industry Reviews

"Kay Burke's authenticity naturally extends to her professional writing and speaking engagements. Her professional development opportunities attract educators who know they will walk away with new research, new strategies, and something to do TOMORROW. This wonderfully practical book contains real examples from real teachers, helpful checklists, and rubrics. I particularly like the application and reflection pages, and I wish every principal would use them with their teachers." -- Julie Davis, Executive Director
"At last, a text that I can use with my new teachers, experienced teachers and administrators that will make rubrics, to quote the author, "their friends." Dr. Burke's six steps can be easily implemented by all levels of educators immediately. Students will receive meaningful feedback, allowing them to assess their performance and set goals to make their work even better. The end results are empowered teachers, engaged students, and increased student performance." -- Mary Ellen Kotz, Education Associate, New Teacher Mentoring and Teacher Evaluation
"This book outlines an easy-to-follow process for designing and organizing standards-based instruction that engages students in performance-based learning. Kay Burke effectively shows teachers how to use checklists and rubrics to put students in the driver's seat of their own assessment for learning." -- Nancy Larimer, Professional Learning Supervisor
"I have employed and tested the methods outlined in this must-have book in my own high school biology classes. The six steps enabled me to have a 100% pass rate on our high-stake exam with gain scores that almost doubled those of traditionally taught classrooms. Teaching instructional design classes for a college at the master's level, I highly encourage students to follow the plan outlined in this book." -- Richie Wood, Professor
