College Board Releases Core Arts Standards Research

« Back

Feb 10, 2012

The College Board, in partnership with the National Coalition for Core Arts Standards (NCCAS), has released two new research reports designed to support the revision of the National Arts Education Standards. The College Board has now conducted five research projects for the coalition's Next Generation Arts Standards Project.

A Review of Selected State Arts Standards examines the recently revised arts education standards (in dance, music, theatre, and visual arts) of eight states and districts; reviews media arts standards in four states or districts and analyzes possible links between the new National Arts Education Standards and the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts and Math.

Child Development and Arts Education: A review of Current Research and Best Practices is a literature review that analyzes research linking arts-based learning and human development, including physical and cognitive growth and academic skills such as long-term memory, reading, creative thinking, and writing fluency. The study also includes research on the social and emoitional impact of arts participation.
