A Model for Evaluating Art Education Programs.
Lai, Morris K.; Shishido, Judy
A review of the literature about practices in evaluating art education programs led to the design of the new evaluation model described in this paper. The literature review revealed that a growing number of authors advocate qualitative methods, and that a debate exists regarding the combination of qualitative and quantitative data gathering and analysis methods. In addition, the literature search uncovered very few tests which measure student achievement in art. Interest in standardized art testing is a recent phenomenon in the United States and abroad. Other findings uncovered in the literature search included the observation that art education is particularly important at the elementary level because enthusiasm about acquiring skills in art is lacking in adolescents. The description of the evaluation design which emerged from this research starts with an outline of sampling considerations. Evaluation activities that take place in the class are outlined next, followed by brief comments on out-of-class activities. Evaluation instruments listed include: (1) a questionnaire for art resource teachers; (2) forms for teachers' evaluation of student performance (different instruments for different grade levels); (3) an art event survey; (4) a questionnaire for art education teachers; (5) a form for collecting tests developed by art education teachers; (6) a questionnaire for students; (7) a form for interviewing students; and (8) a classroom observation form. (Questionnaires and survey instruments are included). (KA)
