African South of the Sahara: An Objective Test for Secondary Schools. A World Regions Perception Survey.
Carnegie-Mellon Univ., Pittsburgh, PA.
Designed by Project Africa of Carnegie-Mellon University, these two test instruments have been used to discover what selected American secondary school students know or believe about Africa and other regions of the world. The first instrument, a 30-minute objective test, "Africa South of the Sahara," is comprised of 60 multiple-choice and matching questions. An answer key is provided. The second test, "A World Regions Perception Survey," asks students to match 90 selected vocabulary terms with any of seven regions of the world--North America, South America, Europe, Russia, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa south of the Sahara. A world map and directions for administration of both tests are included. (See ED 023 692 and ED 023 693 for the reports of the projects in which these tests were used.) (RD)
