Excerpts from the Book
"The Performance Based Assessment (PBA) will be administered once 75% of the school year is complete. It will consist of a literary task, a research simulation task, and a narrative writing task. In the PBA, students will be given a set amount of time to read several texts, many of which will be paired together, answer several vocabulary and reading comprehension questions, and write a short essay."
"The End of Year Assessment (EOY) will be administered once 90% of the school year is complete. It will consist of a combination of literary and informational texts. In the EOY, students will also be given a set amount of time to read several texts, many of which will be paired together (for the upper grades), and answer vocabulary and reading comprehension questions; writing will not be a part of the EOY."
