Once again let me direct you all to the book "Assessment in Art Education"
by Donna Kay Beattie. Published by Davis available for 15.00. Dr Beattie
did a spectacular 2 day workshop here in Arkansas last December on
assessment. She shared quite a bit on performance based assessment or
"tasks" as they are done in Australia. Very cool and exciting stuff. I
used some of her information with some of my ideas for a workshop I taught
to elementary science teachers on assessment. We simulated a performance
based assessment using the theme of "herbs". The science teachers loved
I would also recommend the other books in this Davis
series...Aesthetics/Marilyn Stewart and Talking about Student Art/Terry
Barrett. Very very readable books.
