Elementary Art Assessment Resource

I'm just putting some information I found in my favorite PLN, Art Ed 2.0, this is an assessment option: From site: "All 4th graders will be taking the District Art Assessment Test in two weeks. This will be a multiple choice Scantron test in which students will answer questions about art knowledge. They apply the elements and principles of art in every lesson and demonstrate learning using art tools and media within each art class. Students are typically applying what they learn by problem solving in class, therefore, this pencil/ paper assessment is a different approach and requires practice. Testing their art knowledge using multiple choice tests is required by our district. I created an online quiz using and students took my quiz using our class set of iPads. I formatted the quiz so that the questions would appear in random order. Therefore, students were all answering different questions at different times to ensure they were working independently." (author-Suzanne Tiedemann) Is this where we are headed? Regardless, we (meaning art educators) DO need to come up with proactive solutions to assessing (other than our usual, rich methods---art products, process formatives, & portfolios).
