The aim of the study was to investigate if there was a match between 7th grade English Language Teaching Program and EFL (English as a Foreign Language) classroom practices concerning PTs (Performance Tasks) in terms of characteristics, evaluation and contribution of PTs to language learning. The participants of this study were 30 7th grade EFL students. The data were collected by means of a questionnaire and document analysis. The data were analyzed with the use of SPSS 15.00. Results did not show a significant difference between perceptions of the PTS and gender. Similarly, no correlation was found between perceptions of the PTs and mother and father education level. The analysis of the data indicated that although classroom practices meet moderately the curricular requirements in terms of characteristics, and evaluation and contribution of PTs to language learning, there are still some problems related to PTs in EFL classroom practices.
