Inclusion tasks are tasks designed specifically for use by students in a Collection of Evidence. These tasks have been created by teachers throughout the State of Washington. They have undergone a rigorous peer review process and are edited to assure alignment with state standards. The inclusion tasks have been set apart for the Collection of Evidence (COE) and are therefore not to be used for instructional purposes. The tasks are aligned to the standards and will address at least two performance expectations in two different strands. The tasks are built and developed around important mathematics skills, the same skills assessed through the End of Course (EOC) exam. During assessment periods teachers or school staff will proctor students so that the work sample is truly a reflection of student independent work. Inclusion tasks are in PDF format and are not to be edited. There are enough tasks in the COE inclusion bank so that the students have a wide variety of tasks and topics from which to choose.
Only inclusion tasks are eligible for inclusion in a student Collection of Evidence. These tasks are not to be used for classroom instructional purposes.
