Assessment in Elementary Dance Education
Englebright, Krissa; Mahoney, Meg Robson
Journal of Dance Education, v12 n3 p87-92 2012
In this article, two public school elementary dance educators share their experiences developing and implementing dance performance assessments. The assessments were developed for the State of Washington Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction to assess student learning in dance education and bring dance assessment to an equal platform with assessments in other subject areas in the Washington schools. As the authors reflect on their teaching experiences, they share individual anecdotes and highlight implications for instruction and training other educators in administering the assessments. Their insights provide a view into how state-required assessments are adapted to meet the constraints of teaching in a variety of educational environments and make assessment part of the teaching and learning process. (Contains 2 figures.)
