The mission of the Michigan Assessment Consortium (MAC, Inc.) is to improve student learning and achievement through a system of coherent curriculum, balanced assessment, and effective instruction. We do this by collaboratively promoting assessment knowledge and practice, providing professional development, and producing and sharing assessment tools and products. The Michigan Arts Education Instruction and Assessment Project (MAEIA) Arts Education Program Review Tool (PRT) has been developed by the MAC, Inc. for the Michigan Department of Education (MDE). MAEIA’s PRT is a self-study tool that educators and others can use to analyze and reflect upon the status of their districts’ and schools’ arts education program. It can become the basis for enhancing the arts education program in the context of school improvement and can provide a robust analysis of an arts education program that can feed into the school’s Needs Analysis. The PRT is not for entering or storing individual student data of any kind. It is for general and aggregated information about your school and/or district arts program.
