NOTE: Percents are based on the percentage of teachers who used any formal assessments to determine student progress and achievement in the arts (98 percent of secondary music specialists and 99 percent of secondary visual arts specialists) Arts specialists are education professionals with a teaching certificate in an arts discipline—such as music, visual arts, dance, or drama/theatre—who provide separate instruction in that discipline.
