High-quality assessments are an integral part of measuring and monitoring student growth. Currently, there is a critical need for solid growth measures in the arts. And, as high-quality vendor assessments are not available, arts educators across Ohio are left to develop measures, often in isolation and without adequate assessment literacy.
To help fill that need, The Ohio Arts Assessment Collaborative (OAAC), a consortium of arts educators, created an innovative suite of authentic assessments to measure student growth for K–12 dance, drama/theatre, music, and visual arts. These new assessments are aligned with arts education standards in Ohio. The consortium will share with all Ohio educators the completed arts assessments, which will be field-tested for validity, reliability, and ease of implementation, as well as provide access to all professional learning resources developed to increase the assessment literacy of arts educators.
This work has been made possible by the Ohio Arts Assessment Collaborative through an Ohio Straight A Fund grant. To learn more, click here.
