NAEA Position Statements: Assessment

Category: Assessment

Assessment measures student learning in the visual arts and informs best practices in art education. Quality assessment is critical to effective instruction and comprehensive delivery of the visual arts curriculum. Authentic assessment in the visual arts can take many forms (formative, summative, program assessment, portfolio assessment, peer assessment, quality scale or ‘rubric’, self-assessment).

NAEA believes that a variety of authentic assessments which are developmentally appropriate for all learners are vital to best practices in art education.
