Arts Assessment Strategies for Educators


Educators who are versed in strong assessment strategies provide more meaningful arts experiences for their students. Quality arts education begins with clear lesson and assessment criteria. Thoughtful assessment strategies enhance arts experiences by making students and teachers more cognizant of what is being taught and learned. In this course participants explore state-of-the-art assessment techniques including essential questions; journaling; portfolios; rubrics to measure the quality of learning for tasks and criteria; Visual Thinking Strategies; and prompts for pair-share and small group discussion. You’ll deepen your understanding of assessment strategies and comprehensive lesson planning through interactive experiences and engaging discussions. As a result, you will be able to design richer, project-based experiences that scaffold learning and customize assessment tools that meet grade level VAPA standards. Consequently your students will have more clarity regarding the tasks and criteria for projects, resulting in a deeper level of engagement, heightened awareness and problem solving skills, and more personal responsibility for their learning.
