Relevance of Topic

Using Media Art as a form of assessment is very relevant at the secondary level. Students are disconnected with the assessment process because they experience so many tests. Teachers also what students to think more in-depth about the artistic process. Most students are also attached to their personal technology and would be interested in completing an assessment using that technology. If policy doesn’t allow for personal devices, most schools have enough devices to make this concept successful.
