ABSTRACT
The article discusses the Artful Learning Communities project, which aimed to help elementary and middle school arts teachers to assess learning in the arts, to promote student art achievements through assessment, and to develop the ability of teachers to systematize their assessment through the use of feedback. The project was supported by the U.S. Department of Education and 48,000 students in grades 3-8 from schools in South Brooklyn, New York City took part. The authors suggest that when students had the chance to become their own educators, they were able to show attributes desirable for learners such as self-teaching and self-assessment.
