Study guide


Assessment in art education largely takes place on a permanent basis on the basis of evaluation and feedback. It is the result of a nuanced process aimed at stimulating the artistic learning process that you go through as a student. Within this period, periods of growth and development alternate with periods of reflection and processing.

Depending on the working method, testing takes place in various ways. Most courses have little or no written assessment, but your development is mainly assessed 'on the floor'.
In certain technical and theoretical subjects, learning, practice, training and testing are closely related. Carrying out (written) assignments, giving presentations or writing papers are the obvious form of testing.
In many other subjects, presentations and performances are worked on and assessment takes place through observations and analysis of the development you have gone through. The rehearsal process for a performance or presentation is a period of training, learning, playing/dancing, improvising and rehearsing during which the teacher intensively guides the student and provides continuous feedback. You get feedback on what you do and how you do something. The resulting clues focus on how you could do things differently or better. In this way you learn by doing, in the practice of the creative process. Everything comes together on the floor. You will be assessed by the permanent feedback you receive, but it also encourages learning and further exploration of your options.
