The Assessment Papers for Art Education are a collection of more than a dozen essays written in response to a call from NAEA’s leadership and Professional Materials Committee. These essays teach about current and established assessment practices and theories, and how these practices are relevant to all NAEA members.
Assessment refers to how we measure and appraise anticipated and unanticipated student performances, learning outcomes, dispositions, and teaching and program effectiveness. This series offers a starting point for NAEA members—across all levels—as well as parents, administrators, and the general public to understand assessments’ applications to art education. For those who are already proficient in assessment, the series can inspire new ideas and bolster current practices.
