>Dear Daryn,
>I think you might find a lot of help on assessment if you read the NAEA´s
>Assessment Specifications. To evaluate skills you do not only consider a
>child´s physical ability to handle art materials and techniques. There are
>also other important indicators of skill in art production that we all must
>bear in mind, such as:
>The ability to reflect knowledge and understanding of the context (in upper
>elementary grades).
>The ability to experiment and explore different art material, techniques
>and processes while engaged in production exercises.
>The ability to reflect original ideas and personal diection in his artwork
>The ability to reflect upon his own work.
>As for participation, you might also consider how appropriately a child
>describes and analyzes his own work and the work of others.
>Evaluation is now a very important theme in school art programs and
>although there has been research on it, there is still litle knowledge of
>how to get it really working. I´d appreciate if you could send this
>message and my e-mail address to the Artsednet, since I am not on the list.
> I currently am the Art Coordinator in an elementary school in Lima, Perú,
>a country where art education has never been considered essential in the
>curriculum, despite the amazing art manifestations that have been used by
>our own people and many diiferent cultures throughout many centuries. I
>will be joining the list very soon, but I would appreciate if you helped me
>get some discussion started. Until then,
>Massiel Arregui
