The Assessment Clearinghouse.
Abell, Lydia
The Assessment Clearinghouse of the Memphis (Tennessee) City Public Schools is a collection of performance-based instructional tasks that have been designed to address specific content standards at specific grade levels. The tasks consist of a complete set of instructional and assessment activities for immediate classroom use. They also provide a model that may be replicated by teachers who wish to develop their own ideas. All of the Clearinghouse tasks contain an introductory activity, a series of hands-on group activities, and an individual application that gives the student the opportunity to demonstrate what has been learned. Most of the individual applications require integration of one or more subject areas beyond the primary focus. The "Catalog of Performance-Based Instructional Tasks" contains descriptions of 174 tasks in the areas of English/language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, arts, foreign language, and health. An example of an individual application for grades 6 through 8 is given, with the scoring rubric for the task. (SLD)
