These journal articles examine the issues of evaluation and art education. In (1) "Self Evaluation for Secondary Art Students, Why Bother?" (Margaret Scarr), the article recommends that involving students in assessing their work contributes to learning. (2) "Evaluating for Success" (Arlene Smith) gives practical suggestions for evaluating primary student art. (3) "Evaluation of the Visual Arts and the Year 2000" (Laurie Rae Baxter) offers a reference point for evaluation by listing six components of the visual arts. (4) "Picking up the Gauntlet" (Ronald Smith) challenges teachers to use appropriate assessment tools in order to increase the legitimacy of art as an area of study. (5) "Curating Your Own Exhibit" (Jennifer McIntyre) advocates student exhibition curating as a self evaluation approach. And (6) "A Review of Manitoba's Art Evaluation Guidelines K-12" (Chris McCraig) gives some evaluation approaches to consider. The concluding article, (7) "Teachers Talking about Evaluating Art" (Sharon McCoubrey) presents the results of a dialogue with five teachers. These teachers were presented questions covering assessment, evaluation, and reporting, the three roles of evaluation. Their responses, presented in this article, are varied and practical. (MM)
