My Work > Authentic Assessments in the Arts

Why do we assess the arts? How do we do it fairly? Can we use it to guide teaching & learning? In this workshop we will create a sample project to assess, perform it, and give feedback. We will explore the process of making a rubric for this performance piece. Then we will look at sample rubrics contributed by various teaching artists from around the country. In order to create a personalized assessment tool for one of your projects, we’ll take a quick look at the Content Standards for the Arts and identify learning objectives for your project.
