Welcome to the FSAA—Performance Task Portal

The FSAA—Performance Task is designed to provide tiered participation within the assessment for students working on Access Points at various levels of complexity. Each item set is built with three levels of cognitive demand, with Task 1 representing the least complex tasks and Task 3 representing the most complex tasks. This tiered progression provides students the opportunity to work to their fullest potential and allows for a greater range of access and challenge.
