Assessment in the arts is a vexed, contentious issue; caught in the crossfires of competing values and external pressures for demonstrated accountability in education. As arts educators we must engage with assessment - on its own terms. In this chapter I explore field experience in drama assessment for Year 12 students in Western Australia to show some possible pathways forward for arts assessment.
