Trying to fit art education into traditional assessment methods (bubble tests, anyone?) is like trying to fit a square peg in a round hole. We are different, and because of that, most traditional assessments just don’t work for us. But we’re required to show data in today’s educational landscape. So where do we turn?
Throughout this course you’ll examine current research in assessment in arts education and explore strategies and systems used by some of the top schools and programs in the nation to assess the arts. Based upon the research and models from class, you’ll leave this course with a comprehensive toolkit that has many different types of authentic assessments ready for direct application in your classroom.
