Arts Assessment: Evidence of Success

High-quality assessments are an integral part of measuring and monitoring student growth and informing classroom instruction. Arts educators are often left on their own to develop assessments and identify student growth measures, often without adequate background in assessment design and implementation.  Research indicates that a large percentage of arts teachers do not believe they’ve been adequately prepared to develop arts assessments, feel they do not have time to revise and improve their assessments, and typically work in isolation to find or create whatever assessments they do use.

OAAE offers professional development workshops to help educators acquire skills in developing, reviewing, and selecting high-quality assessments. This email address is being protected from spambots.

UPDATE: Recommendations for Ohio's Revised ESSA Plan

The OAAE and several other statewide stakeholder organizations believe that there are many opportunities for Ohio's ESSA plan to directly support arts education programs and a well-rounded education for Ohio's students.  After providing recommendations about the February 2, 2017 draft consolidated plan, we had hoped that there would be more emphasis on a well-rounded education, including the arts, in the revised consolidated plan.

The OAAE has made specific recommendations to strengthen support for a well-rounded education in the latest draft of Ohio's consolidated plan for implementing the Every Student Succeeds Act. Read the recommendations in our June 2017 letter to the State Board of Education. 

Update:  The Ohio Department of Education submitted to the U.S. DOE Ohio’s ESSA plan on September 15, 2017.

The delay provided another opportunity for education advocates to make more recommendations to revise the ESSA plan. The OAAE, for example, recommended that the plan correct the state graduation requirements, which had omitted the arts requirement, and insert support for a “well-rounded education” in several parts of the plan. Most of OAAE’s recommendations were included. Read more in our Legislative Update.
