Assessment in the arts

MENC (National Association for Music Education) has a fairly new section on their website called MENC Advocacy Groundswell. On March 31st the following question was posted:

What do you think about “measuring” music students? I am thinking in terms of accountability.

The question was posted by one of MENC staff members, Nancy Townes. As of today there were 12 comments to the question. You might want to check them out and consider your thoughts on this topic. Even though this was posted on the national music website it could apply to any of the art forms. http://advocacy.menc.org/forum/topics/what-do-you-think-about#comments Of course it would be great to hear what you have to say so please post a comment below in the meartsed blog.
