Abstract

Assessment in Creative Disciplines: Quantifying and Qualifying the Aesthetic explores creativity and its assessment using easy-to-grasp concepts; concrete examples of arts education and assessment models and theories, including digital education models and e-portfolios; and case studies to form a blueprint that administrators, educators, practitioners, researchers, and students can use to assess endeavors in art, dance, design, and music, both on an individual basis and as a collective (course, cohort, department, program, etc.). While the book was written using examples from colleges and universities, its principles can easily be applied to the secondary arts education arena.
