The Portfolio Project

The Portfolio Project is an initiative of NYSATA that was developed in cooperation with the New York State Education Department. It is an authentic assessment tool that is based on The New York State Learning Standards and provides students with an opportunity to present portfolios of their work at regional adjudication sites. The student portfolios provide evidence of understanding and student learning in the visual arts. Feedback is available for the student, parent, school, and community. The Portfolio Project can provide an authentic source for data on student success in the visual arts.

Guidelines for Participation:

  • Nominating art educator must be a current member of the New York State Art Teachers Association. Click here for information on becoming a member or renewing your membership.

  • Please check with your region coordinator to find out if there is a maximum number of students per teacher for your region.

  • Submit one completed registration form for each student, along with the $15.00 payment per student, made payable to NYSATA.

  • Distribute Student/Teacher Directions and Adjudication Guidelines and assist students in the process of preparing for the review.

  • After the student has registered, a confirmation will be sent to you by the site coordinator. The confirmation will indicate the review time for each student. You will also receive travel directions to the adjudication site for your region.

  • DO NOT MAIL ARTWORK. All students must bring their artwork to the adjudication site at the appointed time and personally present their portfolios.
