Hi, At the end of every semester, my department has art portfolio reviews with students at different academic levels. Our student enrollment has increased dramatically in less than 2 years. I am trying to get ideas on how to do portfolio reviews with a large group of students in a small department. We have a total of 70+ students and 6 faculty members. Any advice is appreciated!

I am very new to teaching. I prompt my students to brainstorm their options in many learning scenarios. When they are at a loss for any thoughts, like the "jeopardy/or I want be a millionaire games", they can ask a friend for assistance. Virginia

I am looking for assessments for Premiere Pro CC 2015 & Dreamweaver CC 2015 applications.  Students primarily show their understanding by creating projects based on a rubric given in the class.  I would like to know if other educators have created assessments that would evaluate students knowledge of techniques / skills in Premiere Pro CC 2015 & Dreamweaver CC 2015.  Any ideas would be appreciated. The AAE Team has been very helpful in suggesting ideas for this discussion.

It is great having a creative task linked to a curriculum framework but sometimes it is good to be able to quickly answer a question from students or parents 'What is the aim of this project'. This arrises if a project is particularly abstract and focuses on soft skills rather than technical skills and rote knowledge.

Anyone out there using Adobe Acrobat to create Interactive Tests with automatic marking? Love to hear from you. PS It is REALLY annoying in an educational environment to find BAD SPELLING MISTAKES. The word is you're sharing NOT your sharing.

For those teachers who hand out the assignment before teaching the skills. I was wondering what your views were on Project Based Learning where students learn on the go and your teaching is synchronised with the assignment requirements. Does it work or have you tried more effective approaches.

When we do a course I think that it would be useful if we could have an official link to LinkedIn. When you finish a course with there is a certificate and page that enables it to be linked to from LinkedIn, could we not have the same for the Adobe courses? What do people think?

I am teaching PS, ILL, and ID. My students are using Classroom in a Book and our district wants the students to take a test for each chapter. However, I am not seeing any testing materials (except for 3-4 review questions and answers) at the end of a chapter. Has anyone had to make up tests on PS, ILL or ID for their classrooms? Any help on this would be appreciated.

Here's a rubric that we used for a Photoshop Self Portrait project. Some of the terminology may look odd because it's in context of the project assignment. The 4 point scale is a standard in our art department (it basically works like GPA, 4=A, 3=B, etc.) I would love for some folks out there to critique. I've used it for many years. It's designed to really try to cover everything that might come up.... but it's been a long time since I've gotten new eyes on it. I've also attached an example from the... Read More
