For Acuity Product Manager Holly Bremerkamp, developing performance tasks is a labor of love. As a former educator, Holly wished that she had a bank of rich performance tasks to choose from that met all of her expectations. Holly said, “Although I loved to use performance-based assessments in my own classroom, it did take time to create the kind of rich, multi-faceted tasks that I wanted my students to experience. I had to search for engaging stimulus materials, determine what standards I wanted to assess with the task, write the task to accurately assess those standards, and create my rubric so it effectively evaluated the task content.”
