Putting it Together: Dynamic Assessments 

When educators braid in dynamic assessments that measure the content, actions, process, and progress of creative work they can activate their student's ability to construct and navigate their learning. Additionally using peer assessment, self-assessment, and teacher feedback allow students to reflect and elevate their work beyond their expectations. In this session, Lee will present a framework for arts learning assessment that allows educators and students to connect artistic process, Big Ideas, and key soft skills. Participants will examine and reflect on the benefits of formative assessment, success criteria, and feedback to elevate the artistry of students.
