Given the increased focus on assessment and accountability in education since the 1990s, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) identified the need to capture the current status of arts assessment. As such, the NEA commissioned WestEd to examine current trends, promising techniques, and successful practices being used to assess student learning in the arts throughout the country, as well as identify potential areas in which arts assessment could be improved.
