Welcome! This Eric Carbaugh course, focused on the book which he co-authored, Designing Authentic Performance Tasks and Projects: Tools for Meaningful Learning and Assessment, addresses the design and implementation of authentic performance tasks and projects. Throughout the course, you’ll learn about many practical tools to help you integrate these learning and assessment strategies into the fabric of your classroom. In addition to the modules devoted to the design of tasks, projects, and rubrics, you’ll also explore how to differentiate these tasks, teach in a performance-based classroom, and overcome common management challenges. The last chapter is devoted to creating a performance-based curriculum.

By completing this course, participants will:
