Share is very popular in my classroom. Student love sharing their art and ideas with the whole class. I have recognized that share time was an opportunity for another assessment. How can I show evidence of my students learning through share? How can do this efficiently? How can I align share to the Colorado Visual Art Standards?
I decided to use my already made rubrics that are organized by mind, heart, and hands but add in essential questions.
Below is a preview of 1st and 4th grade rubrics- and links to download copies of each.
Now that I have a rubric created for my students to use, I started to question: How am I going to collect and record evidence? I have relied on self-assessments and artists statements in the past. I still want to use those but, I am finding that most of my standards are observable skills. I have observe my students doing most of the skills. I am in the process of creating these grading sheets to help me record skills observed in my students. I have this one below for 5th grade share time. I find that share time can be a great assessment. Students interact, interpret, and analyze their own art. I am creating these for me to fill out during their share time.

I am still debating on grading categories. I was thinking:
40% Reflection, Statements
50% Reflections, Statement
Let me know if you have ideas!
I have been working on creating some new rubrics for the 2019-20 school year. I wanted to create something that was easy to understand, aligns with Colorado standards, uses Studio Habits of Mind, and had a unifying theme for all grades.
*Studio Habits are a great way to assess students in a TAB classroom! "Studio Thinking from the Start" has some wonderful resources and ideas that work for elementary.
I was reminded of John Crowe's assessment of artists using their heart, mind, and hands. I liked this easy concept of categorizing skills and concepts. I decide to take my standards and organize them this way. Here is what it looks like:
I added some bullet points under a few categories to describe a standard more in depth. These align with the Colorado Visual Art Standards.
