Use PBAs to design learning experiences that increase student engagement and achievement! This book explains performance-based assessments (PBAs) in easy-to-understand terms and describes how to construct PBAs that measure learner performance effectively while allowing educators to align curriculum and instruction with students' needs.

The author provides: detailed and clear examples of performance-based assessments; tools for assessment and guidelines for creating and using rubrics; and, checklists, frequently asked questions, graphic organizers, and activities to reinforce the content in each chapter.
