  1. 1. N AT I O N A L VISUAL ARTS STANDARDS MOV I N G F O RWA R D Answers to your questions and opportunities to learn more! National Coalition for CORE ARTS Standards
  2. 2. THE DEVELOPMENT of the next generation of voluntary National Visual Arts Standards is underway. Following public review of the draft PreK-8 standards (Summer 2013) and High School standards (December 2013-January 2014), the release of the next generation of arts standards is planned for Spring 2014. NAEA is among a number of governing organizations of the National Coalition for Core Arts Standards (NCCAS) and leads the development of the visual arts standards through the visual arts writing team. Find out more at the project wiki site, including: The Framework Matrix and the Conceptual Framework for the National Arts Standards The Framework Matrix provides a visual understanding of the structure of the new standards. Connection to the Common Core The College Board prepared a research paper entitled, The Arts and the Common Core: A Review of Connections Between the Common Core State Standards and the National Core Arts Standards Conceptual Framework. +MORE!
  3. 3. WHAT will the next generation of Standards look like? HOW will they be different from the 1994 Standards? Development of the Standards in keeping with the broader educational context: The context of “big ideas” positions the standards within a complete framework that also includes Philosophical Foundations, Lifelong Goals, Enduring Understandings, Essential Questions, and Model Cornerstone Assessments. Grade Level Standards: The standards will cover grades PreK through 8 by individual grade levels, rather than by grade bands. High school standards will be prepared in three levels: proficient, accomplished, and advanced. Anchor Standards for each of the components of the processes of Creating, Presenting, and Responding provide the essence of the individual Performance Standards developed for each grade level and the three high school levels. The Processes of Creating, Presenting, and Responding: The standards are organized around the artistic processes of Creating, Presenting, and Responding, reflecting the use of these terms within the NAEP Arts Assessment. However, Presenting is being used by visual arts, whereas Performing is used by dance, theater, and music, and Producing is used by media arts.
  4. 4. Uniformity Across all of the Arts Disciplines: The development of the new arts standards reflects the oversight and collaboration among all of the key stakeholders, including a conceptual framework and matrix that is uniform across all of the arts disciplines, while reflecting the specific qualities and characteristics of each arts discipline. The 1994 Standards do not provide this level of uniformity with the primary consistency reflected in publishing all of the four disciplines (visual art, music, dance, and theater) in one publication. Model Cornerstone Assessments: The development of the new standards is actually a two-part process. As standards are developed, model cornerstone assessments will be incorporated into the work in order to provide examples of how the arts standards can be assessed. They will provide examples of student assessments by grade band, supporting a clear understanding that there are a variety of ways to construct authentic assessments for the new standards. The addition of Media Arts Standards: The new standards include media arts, as an arts discipline in education to recognize and ensure aesthetic knowledge and understanding. More Standards than in the 1994 Standards: With the development of the new standards organized around the processes of Creating, Presenting, and Responding, there are many more standards than before. As standards are updated across subject areas, there are many more standards than in the past for the Common Core of mathematics and English/language arts, as well as the arts. While there will be more Standards, they will be written for easy application to classroom art instruction.
