PRODUCTION TASKS VERSUS OTHER TASKS• What makes production tasks different from content exploration tasks? EDUC W200 Week 7
CHARACTERISTICS OF PRODUCTION TASKS• Example: Digital Story 1. Deals with authentic (real-world) issues 2. Planning, critical thinking, reasoning, and creativity 3. Multifaceted assessment (i.e., rubric) 4. Developed over time; Focus on individual progress (i.e., portfolio) 5. Student choice 6. Teachers facilitate rather than control 6.1. Scaffolding/support from a variety of sources 7. Individual vs. group responsibility (communication skills)• Production tasks are complex, but demonstrate complex knowledge, skills, abilities, and attitudes EDUC W200 Week 7

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO CONSIDER FORPRODUCTION TASKS?• What does the task entail? o Think about what you want your students to prove they know• Which type of production tools can my students use? o Hint: think about their abilities, background knowledge, etc.• How complex is the task? o How much time will you need to dedicate? o What scaffolding/assistance might the students need? o How might the technology complicate/ease the task?• What resources are available? EDUC W200 Week 7
PRODUCTION TASKS INVOLVECOMPLEX ACTIVITIES• Learners are not just doing a task – they are: o Demonstrating knowledge in action o Learning the acceptable and best ways to do a task • Ex: How to interact with community leaders o Group work: • learn about working as a team o How to present content, not just the content itself EDUC W200 Week 7
PRODUCTION TASKS INVOLVECOMPLEX ACTIVITIES• The assessment of a production task is not just the product, but the process of creating the product o That’s why rubrics are often used with Production Tasks o That’s why we will be discussing assessment of production tasks later today! EDUC W200 Week 7
