SEADAE is currently accepting proposals for conference sessions for our November 2016 Arts Assessment Symposium: Advances in Arts Assessment:  Changes in Policy; Advances in Practice.  

This symposium will provide a platform for sharing advancements in arts assessment policies and practices from the local, state, and national levels. We invite you to submit a proposal for a sixty minute breakout session. Proposals should address one of the two organizing themes, Changes in Policy or Advances in Practice. Our themes are designed to make it easy for participants to seek out sessions which will help them acquire solutions to their individual problems of practice.   

Changes in Policy sessions will address local, state, or federal policies, programs or practices that impact assessment, accountability, teacher evaluation or opportunities to learn.

Advances in Arts Assessment sessions will address applied models for assessing student learning for a variety of purposes. These models may be anywhere along the development continuum from not yet piloted to items that have been tested and results that have been reported.  Be ready to identify the problem of practice which your session might address.  Proposals will be accepted until May 15, 2016.

 SEADAE Partners with the National Coalition for Core Arts Standards in Call for Adjudicators of Student Work

The National Coalition for Core Arts Standards (NCCAS) is issuing an invitation for arts educators interested in applying to be considered for a role in the benchmarking of student work collected during the recent pilot of the High School level Model Cornerstone Assessments.  Benchmarkers will adjudicate student work collected in order to create a resource bank of student work tied to the new national core arts standards at the three high school levels. .

Model Cornerstone Assessments are a supplement to the new national core arts standards.  They  were created by the NCCAS writing teams for each discipline at the benchmark grades of 2, 5, 8 and the three high school levels (proficient, accomplished, advanced) to stand as examples of the type of evidence needed to show student achievement aligned to targeted performance standards.  The High School pilot took place during the 2015-2016 school year in diverse school settings across the nation.   Student work collected as a part of this pilot will be reviewed in a process of benchmark scoring culminating in a face to face three day event held this summer in Reston, Virginia.   Five educators from each arts discipline, will be chosen to comprise discipline specific teams to complete the benchmarking  through this rigorous application and interview process which will begin on April 24th and continue until midnight, Monday, May 23, 2016.  .  Interested persons may apply by completing the online application found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/HSBenchmarkers


The Model Cornerstone Assessment Pilot and Benchmarking project was paid for in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.   To access the documentation of the work of piloting the Model Cornerstone Assessments or for more details about the project please go to the National Coalition for Core Arts Standards wiki at http://nccas.wikispaces.com
