Measuring Up captures levels of access to and opportunities in arts education in New Hampshire public schools (2008-2009). The project was a joint effort among the New Hampshire Dept. of Education, the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts, and the Arts Alliance of Northern New Hampshire. Quadrant Arts Education Research provided data collection and analysis.
The resources on this website for Measuring Up include the full report, Measuring Up: NH Arts Education Data Project, a slide show that accompanies the full the report, an Executive Summary, the complete set of Data Tables, the list of school that participated in the survey collection that were used to compile results, the original data collection tools (surveys) and User’s Guide, and a list of our funders.
These materials and this information may be useful for advocacy presentations to school boards or for grant writing. This data may be used for further research studies. The surveys are available for use by individual schools or by all schools in a district whereas upon completion the results can be used for comparison with state trends and norms. How does your school “measure up” against other schools when it comes to arts education? Find out by using the resources available on this section of the website.
