Anglea Maiers, who is someone I greatly look up to in the field of Education, just posted about the work she did consulting with our art department. View her article here “The Importance of the Arts in Education.” For our with with the art department she and I collaborated and worked together for the common good of the group. You can see the resources she created for us on her site. In addition to her resources, I created a PDF based upon her internet research to help our art department sort through the different arts assessments available and being implemented around the country.
You can download my PDF on Arts Assessments by clicking on the image below. It’s a large file. All of the links are live so you can visit the different websites to learn more about Assessment in Art Education. I had so much fun creating this resource and learned A TON.
This document is your one stop shop to learning more about arts assessments! As some of you may know, my art department is in the process of creating a new assessment plan. We are moving away from our Bubble Sheet Tests to something more authentic and more creative. I am super excited about the research we are doing. I firmly believe that Art Assessment Matters, and I am committed to helping our art department come up with assessments that truly represent what we are teaching and our students are learning. Stay tuned as I update you on our progress.
PS. My new logo is now represented at the top of my blog. I am very pleased with the result. Find out the process I went through to get this logo right here.
