The Reading & Writing Project is a collaborative project that provides teachers with tools designed to help students become skilled readers, writers, and thinkers. It is headed by Lucy Calkins, a respected reading researcher and author.
As part of the Reading & Writing Project, Teachers College at Columbia University created a bank of ELA performance task questions for the State of New York. A large bank of questions is available by grade level and most of the tasks include digital videos, photographs, informational text, paired text, and rubrics. This is a great resource for high-quality digital text!
Performance tasks on this site are also perfect for first and second grade teachers looking to introduce these skills to students for the first time. Sample performance task items are currently available for K-8.
To access the performance tasks click on – RESOURCES – ASSESSMENTS – PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENTS. Then choose a school year and grade.
