What's a P.A.?

P.A.s are alternative graded assessments (performances and products) you create to show what you know about a particular subject. They are done before a traditional test to review the material as a class and get a grade before you even see the test.
The 3 Basic Steps to starting the Performance Assessment are:
1. Choose a PA from the list or think of a new one.
2. Fill in the Planning Sheet to plan your PA.
3. Create the descriptions for a detailed Rubric using the formatted rubric sheet
