Art: Assessing Creativity

Today in class we talked about how you assess art, more specifically, how you assess creativity. Creativity fosters deeper learning and builds confidence. It provides students the opportunity to express themselves in ways that other forms of expression can't. But, when it comes to assessing, how do we place judgment on someone's creativity? What one person considers beautiful may or may not be another persons idea of beautiful. So, what do we do? Our class talked about the importance of setting specific objectives. We decided this would be one way to assess students. Another way is through improvement and growth. As a teacher you keep a portfolio of the students work and watch it throughout the semester or year.
