What is G.R.A.S.P?
An authentic assessment design model to help you develop performance tasks, project
units and/or inquiry lessons.
There are five parts to the G.R.A.S.P. model:
Goal – The Goal provides the student with the outcome of the learning experience and the
contextual purpose of the experience and product creation.
Role – The Role is meant to provide the student with the position or individual persona that they
will become to accomplish the goal of the performance task. The majority of roles found within the
tasks provide opportunities for students to complete real-world applications of standards-based
Audience – The Audience is the individual(s) who are interested in the findings and products that
have been created. These people will make a decision based upon the products and presentations
created by the individual(s) assuming the role within the performance task.
Situation – The Situation provides the participants with a contextual background for the task.
Students will learn about the real-world application for the performance task
Product – The Products within each task are designed using the multiple intelligences. The
products provide various opportunities for students to demonstrate understanding. Based upon
each individual learner and/or individual class, the educator can make appropriate instructional
decisions for product development.
Standard - The standards by which the product will be judged are detailed and fully
supported recommendations in an action plan that is both clear and complete.
These five parts come together to form an authentic assessment that includes a(n) essential
question to share with students.
