Earlier this month, the Arts Education Partnership held its national Spring Forum in Washington DC. At the forum, the Partnership introduced its new research portal, ArtsEdSearch. The site, dedicated to arts education research, is organized by four grade level band, and can be searched by outcomes (engaged, successful students or committed, effective educators) or by setting (in- school or out-of-school).
- What We Know
- List of Studies
- What We Need to Know
- Identifying the gaps in the research, allowing the possibility to develop studies that will be able to respond to some of the needs and next steps that past research has recognized.
- Summarizing research in credible forms that can be used by advocates and advocacy groups to make clear points about what the research in arts education has found.
