The National Center for Research on Evaluation, Standards, and Student Testing (CRESST) at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) was contracted to undertake a three-year external evaluation of the Artful Learning program, an arts-based school improvement model developed from the work and philosophy of the late composer Leonard Bernstein. This is the third-year report of evaluation findings, with a primary focus on Artful Learning participants in the 2003-2004 school year. The purpose of this report is to provide information about the implementation and impact of the program at current participating school sites, as well as place these findings within the context of the overall findings from the three-year evaluation as a whole. Multiple quantitative and qualitative data collection methods were employed throughout this evaluation. Overall, the findings suggest that the Artful Learning program was a useful tool for teachers with a variety of previous teaching experience, district and state contextual demands, grade/content areas taught, and student populations. Teacher satisfaction with the professional development components of the program were high, although assessment was an area singled out as needing additional support. Recommendations, drawing from all three years of the evaluation, are also discussed. A list of Sample Protocols is appended. (Contains 7 tables, 26 figures and 6 footnotes.)
