Moriches, NY - June 18, 2014 - Six William Floyd Middle School art students participated in the New York State Art Teachers Association (NYSATA) Portfolio Project adjudication and earned the highest rating on their work – “distinguished.” The students receiving these top honors are sixth graders Farihah Chowdhury and Hellen Gonsalez; and seventh graders Vicky Jiang, Jenny Lizama, Taylor Wilson and Eve Zaleski.

"The NYSATA portfolio project is a valid assessment of student learning in the visual arts,” said Stephanie Taisler, William Floyd Middle School art teacher. “This challenging experience has reinforced their confidence in their creative ability. I am excited for these students and their accomplishments as talented young artists. They should be very proud of a job well done."   

The Portfolio Project is an initiative of NYSATA that was developed in cooperation with the New York State Education Department. It is an authentic assessment tool that is based on the New York State Learning Standards and provides students with an opportunity to present portfolios of their work at regional adjudication sites. The student portfolios provide evidence of understanding and student learning in the visual arts.
