6.6 Integrated Performance Assessment

An integrated performance assessment includes all three modes of communications — interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational — as a task in which students use a variety of skills appropriately in a realistic, real-world situation. For example, using a simulated restaurant scene, students read and interpret a menu (interpretive), discuss what they would like to order (interpersonal), and place the order with the waiter (presentational). This integrated performance task includes reading, speaking, and listening.
