Written Self Assessment


This post will probably be as boring as it sounds but it’s about something that I am required to do now and I would love some feedback.
My fifth graders were working on their daydreaming self portraits and in the middle of the project, I had them stop and reflect on how it was going so far. I think this really helped some of them. The questions I asked were:
1. Are you following the objectives for this project: using real and imaginary sources for inspiration?
2. What is your opinion of your project so far? Are you happy with it? Not liking it?
3. What will you do differently to fix anything you are not happy with?

These are a few of the results that I thought gave good answers and were able to complete their projects and meet all of the objectives.











I would love to hear feedback and what you do in your classroom on all grade levels.


The Art of Assessment


Another art teacher shared this with me and I want to share it with you all. Assessment is something I’m not very good at and I think that my teaching schedule plays a large part in that, but I really need to get better at it. Like this blogger says, assessment is becoming more and more a part of art education and education in general. We are learning new ways to teach our children how to assess themselves, as well as new ways for the teacher to assess. This is a great, FREE tool for you to use, over at the Art of Education blog: Simple Art Assessments

Thanks to Tracey for sharing and thanks to Jessica for creating!!! I’m looking forward to trying these new techniques with my kiddos!
