The Effectiveness and Use of Digital Portfolios for the Assessment of Art Performances in Selected Secondary Schools
Dorn, Charles M.; Sabol, F. Robert
Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, v47 n4 p344-362 Sum 2006
This is a report of an experimental study that focused on adjudicating the art portfolios of secondary art students assessed in both actual and digital forms in order to determine whether art teachers evaluate actual works of art in students' portfolios differently than digital copies of them. The study participants included 178 students of 29 secondary teachers from four school districts in Florida and Indiana. This report includes description of the rationale for the study, goals and objectives of the study, analysis of the data, and discussion of findings of the study. The results suggest that electronic portfolios can be used to reliably estimate student art performances and that scores produced from art teachers' evaluations of digital copies of actual works of art are consistent with scores produced from evaluations of these same works in the actual form.
