NAEA Announces Visual Arts Education Research Commision

« Back

Feb 27, 2012

The National Art Education Association (NAEA) has announced plans to establish a Research Commission to identify a comprehensive agenda for visual arts education research. The Commission will facilitate an articulated approach to producing and communicating research about the field to support evidence based decision making and educational policy development. While the role of research in contemporary education continues to be defined, research is increasingly relied upon to meet public demands for accountability and to inform policy and program development, decision-making, planning and assessment.

A first task for the new Research Commission will be to conduct a meta-analysis and demographic examination of existing studies in visual arts education research that meet accepted standards of quality - i.e. clear objectives, sound methodology, logical findings, and reliable data to support findings. The Chair and members of Commission will be appointed during the NAEA National Convention in NYC, March 1-4, 2012.
