Suggested Student Profile • Upon entry to high school level study, it is suggested that each student be assessed via a student profile • This profile should be maintained throughout the high school career, so that each student has a history of his/her education, academic performance, and experiences in the arts.
Suggested Student Profile • The profile documents: • arts education and student academic performance in any of the four arts education disciplines at the K-8 levels, • arts studies that the student has completed outside of the school (private lessons, internships, studio classes, etc.).
Student Placement • Those students who have had limited or NO instruction in the arts discipline prior to the high school level will enter at a beginning level of study in any high school coursework. • Students may participate in a variety of electives from beginning through advanced levels in each of the arts disciplines.
Student Placement Practices • student profile • previous and continuing arts education (in and out of school experiences) • checklists (standards-based) • pre-requisites • (completion/mastery of previous level standards) • other criteria • (auditions, products, portfolio, etc.)
Recommendations • What models or practices do we want to recommend? • Think about how you would like to be involved in Proficiency Placement Practices support.
