Assessments OfferedCreativity is a very personalized process, I encourage my students to take "Progress photos" so that when done, they can look back at how they transformed a blank canvas into a painting. These photos are a great visual documentation of their learning. In a year or 5 years, they can look back at their photos and realize how far their skills have come. Thus boosting their morale/ self-esteem to do more creative things.
