Both the art form and the content is to be assessed. Following is from CCESSARTS on Authentic Assessment

 

What is “Authentic Assessment?”  
Assessment is authentic when it mirrors work done by real people in the real world. Traditional pencil-and-paper tests are not considered authentic, as real-life occupations typically use other forms of assessment. Arts education makes great use of authentic assessment when students are creating their own artworks. Grant Wiggins (1998) identified the following standards for authentic assessment:

  1. The assessment task is much like one found in a real-world setting.
  2. The assessment requires judgment and innovation. Students must create their own solutions to problems rather than using only formulas or established procedures.
  3. The assessment asks students to “do” the subject. Rather than regurgitating facts, students must conduct the work of the content area. They must know and do.  
  4. Students must use skills and knowledge to complete complex tasks. Authentic assessment requires students to integrate skill and knowledge – often from more than one content area – to solve problems and create solutions.
  5. The assessment allows students to practice, get feedback, and revise performances and products. Authentic assessments utilize the circular loop of performance, feedback, and revision. Student work develops and evolves through this use of assessment.
