Using Data as a Program Saving Advocacy Tool

Each month AOE puts on a LIVE web event called a ‘workshop’. During each workshop an AOE Team Member presents on an important topic in Art Ed, and attendees are given the opportunity to interact, comment, ask questions and have them answered live. If you missed it, here is the full recording from November’s workshop.

Using Digital and Traditional Portfolios as an Assessment Tool “I have some data, now what?” Most art teachers are collecting data in some way, shape or form in their art rooms. But once you collect data on your student’s progress, what are you DOING with the data to help drive your art program and advocate for the great things happening in your art room? This workshop will provide Art Teachers with the ammunition they need to use assessment results not only as a way to measure student progress but as an advocacy tool to promote their Art Program, celebrate student success, drive instruction, and build important relationships with administration and the community. It’s time to think differently about assessments! We will share shortcuts to streamline your data collection processes and put your data into visual formats for easy advocacy efforts.

    Thank you for sharing the advocacy calendar! Gives us something meaningful to do each month to keep ongoing support for our programs throughout the year. I will definitely use this and share with other teachers in my district.
