This manual presents information about student learning, assessments, and evaluation, and gives practical suggestions for aiding student achievement in the visual arts. The Introduction, (1) "Finding Tar Beach: a Context for Assessment" (Deborah Smith-Shank) reminds educators that evaluation, assessment, and judgment procedures selected should make sense within parameters of knowledge transmission, transaction, and transformation. (2) "a Period of Challenge and Opportunity" (Jerome J.

(3) "Looking at Evaluation: What Good is It?" (E. Manley Delacruz) considers varying perspectives, methods, and purposes that shape the enterprise of educational evaluation. (4) "Evaluation of Individual Student Learning" (L. Willis-Fisher) gives perspectives on evaluation, an overview of methods currently being used in the field, a section on portfolio process, descriptions of evaluation methods, examples of performance-based assessment, and rubrics developed by teachers. (5) "a Working Evolution of a Criterion-Referenced Rating Scale" (Marilyn Schnake) presents a rating scale designed for use by 3 levels of users, the student, the classroom teacher, and the art specialists. (6) "Response: Discussion and Beyond the Beginning" (Carmen Armstrong) is a response to previous chapter topics. (Np)
