ASSESSING STUDENT LEARNING IN VISUAL CULTURE PROGRAMS
Increased interest in visual culture approaches to art education has raised new problems for assessment of student learning. This presentation outlines the issues arising from visual culture approaches and reports the work being done at Northern Illinois University to examine the nature of student learning through portfolio assessment. Although portfolios have been widely used in practice for many years little systematic research has been done to investigate the validity of claims made in support of portfolio methodologies. Research currently underway at Northern Illinois University examines the relationship of reflection and studio work done by senior high school students.
