Assessment of Student Learning in Fine Arts.
Hewitt, Catherine B.; And Others
This document, part of a series of papers which describe the assessment of student learning in various school curriculum areas from prekindergarten through grade 12, focuses on the assessment of student learning in fine arts education. After an overview of current curriculum goals in fine arts education, subsequent sections describe performance-based and self-assessment as they relate to the fine arts disciplines of dance, music, theater/drama, and the visual arts. State activities and guidelines and a brief summary of issues in fine arts education are also provided. Portfolio and performance-based assessment methods are well-established in the fine arts, where they have been field tested and documented. In contrast, in many fields authentic assessments of this sort are just emerging. The assessment strategies used in fine arts provide well-developed models that can be useful in other fields and disciplines. (SLD)
