The National Standards for Arts Education includes expectations for K-12 dance, drama/theater, music and visual arts education in the United States. Teachers, policymakers, and students all need explicit statements of the results expected from an arts education, not only for pedagogical reasons, but to be able to allocate instructional resources and to provide a basis for assessing student achievement and progress. The sequence for presenting the Standards is by grade level: Grades K-4, Grades 5-8, and Grades 9-12. Individual standards should be understood as a statement of what students should know and be able to do. They may, of course, acquire the competency at any time within the specified period, but they will be expected to have acquired it before they move on.

The National Standards for Arts Education have been posted online by ArtsEdge at the Kennedy Center, In fact, ArtsEdge has posted all of the national Standards at their site, if you are looking for them. The National Arts Standards site is used regularly by my student teachers, graduate students, and the public school teachers with whom I work. This site is clear and organized. A Table of Contents, a Preface with Defining Terms, and Introduction (which I often use with my students to help them understand the rationale for arts education and national standards), and the actual standards themselves are all here. The Introduction portion also has a section on Context and Issues that addresses nine big topics such as Standards Incorporate Cultural Diversity and the Standards Provide a Foundation for Student Assessment. The information is very accessible and easy to locate.
