Draft rubrics for the performance tasks have been added to the the About the Project section. These rubrics will not be used in 2014 to assign a score to any student work as part of the CS Principles pilot project. They may be used to help determine how to make changes to the performance tasks, and to help teachers. These rubrics are draft, they do not represent final rubrics for assessing the performance tasks.

The draft performance tasks have been updated as of January 11, 2014. There is also a one-page guide for teachers that provides some ideas on scaffolding and using the tasks in class. The updates include refining the reflection sections of the collaborative performance tasks to make the reflections specific to the task. The updates also simplify and clarify what students submit for the tasks.
