Using Rubrics for Assessment and Evaluation in Art.
Piscitello, Mary E.
This action research project implemented and evaluated an assessment and evaluation program designed to keep students motivated and on-task in art classes. Targeted population consisted of 76 fourth grade students in a middle to lower class suburb of a Midwestern city. Evidence to support the problem consisted of teacher observation checklists and comments, student surveys, teacher surveys, and student journals. Analysis of probable causes through research literature suggests the lack of student ownership and not understanding the grading process contribute to off-task behavior. In addition, lack of various assessment procedures in the class and the instructor's lack of development in assessment training contributed to an unstructured and lax atmosphere. In researching solution strategies three major categories of intervention were selected: teacher and student development of rubrics; implementation of self evaluation; and implementation of William Glasser's control theory. Post-intervention data indicated an increase in student ownership and understanding of criteria used to assess and evaluate their art projects. Students' time-off-task slightly improved due to the intervention. (Contains 7 figures and 22 references. Appendices contain various student and teacher surveys, teacher observation checklist, rubrics for 5 projects, and researcher's daily log.) (Author/BT)
