Individual Arts Assessment Pathway (IAAP)

What is the Individual Arts Assessment Pathway (IAAP)?

  • The Individual Arts Assessment Pathway (IAAP) will be, pending BOR approval, a graduation pathway option in which students demonstrate, through a collection of creative works, growth over time that meets the HSII Accomplished Level in the New York State Learning Standards for the Arts.
  • The artistic method(s), media, or form(s) students use to meet the appropriate State developed IAAP criteria are based on student artistic and research interests in consultation with their arts teachers.
  • The IAAP offers arts students a graduation pathway that prepares them for future professional and educational experiences and opportunities in the arts.
  • Beginning in early 2023, school districts can choose to offer  the IAAP based on student and community interest and program offerings

When will the IAAP be piloted? 

The IAAP Pilot will begin in September 2022.  The Pilot schools selected are a sample of schools and districts that represent the spectrum of districts, students, and arts programs across New York State.
