How to assess the disabled student? I look mostly at process. I partly
evaluate their work based on their previous work, Is there evidence of
growth? Were my expectations met to the best of their physical and mental
ability? (Meeting standards and expectations may look different according to
the abilities of the individual students.) Time on task? Did s/he take the
risk and give the lesson their best shot, regardless of what the final
product looks like? Is the art product an honest expression of the student's
idea? Avoid comparisons to other students' work. Let the work speak for
itself and the student artist who created it. Different "equipment" leads to
different results.
