Collaborative processes for checking the alignment and accuracy of classroom assessments can help teachers and district leadership to simultaneously accomplish effective staff development  and public accountability for student learning in and through the arts.

Section Overview

The commitment to performance assessment has not waivered since the first group of arts educators from across the state gathered to write the first set of Minnesota K–12 arts standards in 1993. That first group of standards writers rejected a statewide paper and pencil test and requested time and money to implement a system of classroom–level performance assessment.

The Perpich Center has developed—with the help of Minnesota arts educators in the Quality Teaching Networks, the arts area working groups, and the district evaluation panels—the tools and processes to do this work and support district, regional and state level meetings to begin a statewide moderation and calibration process.
