In our on-going work with Performing Arts Workshop, we've been asked to conduct a quasi-experimental evaluation of their arts residency program, Artists-in-Schools. Based on results in the last three years, they created the ARISE program, designed to bring arts residencies to classrooms with some students with special needs (called inclusion classrooms in California). We are using a variety of approaches to evaluate the program, including action research, secondary analysis of attendance and test score data, observations and surveys. However, surveys with young children (below grade 5) have presented a challenge in the past. To address this challenge, we are using an adaptation of the Internal Learning System, previously described by Becky in the October 2006 issue of our newsletter. This pictoral diary gives people without strong literacy skills another way to share their ideas. Deborah will be posting a sample of our ILS youth survey when it is further developed.
