With the new end of level assessments making teachers a bit stressed, I created a performance assessment for the 6-8 grade band. The assessment includes a four passage text set as well as all of the Common Core standards used. Scaffolding is included within each of the tasks. The tasks are text dependent questions, which is the focus of the various end of level tests. I also included an argumentative writing prompt, which is a big concern for many teachers. I tried to ensure that students would be challenged, but also able to complete the tasks. The assessment could be at the end of a unit or stand on its own in preparation for the end of level assessments. The overall theme focuses on Civil Rights through Freedom Walkers, Rosa Parks, Mildred Taylor, Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, and The Declaration of Independence. Each text used includes the text complexity and lexile.
