Student Assessment in Arts Education: Towards a Theoretical Framework.
Puurula, Arja; Karppinen, Seija
Student assessment is dependent on the educational views of the teacher. Arts pedagogy in comprehensive schools has several approaches, orientations, and even genres, each in turn having hidden practices of student evaluation. These stem on the one hand from the pedagogical tradition of the field (music, visual arts, drama, craft) and on the other hand from the status of the subject within the school system (arts subjects as entertainment vs. arts subjects as crucial elements in the development of a competent future citizen). This paper aims at developing a theoretical framework for studying assessment in arts subjects. Dance and drama education are not school subjects in Finland, but because the theoretical framework in the paper is developed using international research results and literature, it covers those subjects as well as music, visual arts, and craft/sloyd. Contains 3 figures and 30 references. (Author/BT)
