New Publication in Arts Evaluation and Assessment: Measuring Impact in Schools and Communities 

Steven Holochwost, Dennie Palmer Wolf, Kelly Fisher, Kerry O'Grady, and Kristen Gagnier's work has just been published as "The Arts and Socioemotional Development: Evaluating a New Mandate for Arts Education" in the edited volume Arts Evaluation and Assessment: Measuring Impact in Schools and Communities. The new publication from Palgrave Macmillan brings together a wide range of authors from varied disciplines discussing innovative approaches to measuring the impact of the arts on key areas of human functioning: learning, health, public discourse, place-making and more. Holochwost and Wolf's chapter wrestles with the thorny question of evaluating the impact of the arts in comples, real-world situations like urban schools and neighborhoods.
