The Texas Performance Standards Project (TPSP) provides a series of TEKS-based performance tasks and assessments for gifted/talented (G/T) students in grades K-12.

Tasks are interdisciplinary and will have goals that articulate specific learning objectives. Task components include: a list of task components, resources to support instruction and applicable foundation content area, TKDS, and College and Career Readiness Standards.
