Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO. National Assessment of Educational Progress.
The document presents exercises, documentation, and summaries from the second assessment of music by the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). Objectives were to test 9-, 13-, and 17-year-old students' ability to value music as an important realm of human experience, to identify the elements and expressive controls of music, and to identify and classify music historically and culturally. The document is divided into three parts. Part I discusses the process that occurred during the various stages of development of the assessment, describes the assessment procedures, and outlines the documentation that accompanies each exercise. Part II lists the cognitive and affective objectives and subobjectives and discusses guidelines for the degree of emphasis to be placed on each. Part III presents the 86 exercises which are mainly multiple choice items. Documentation accompanies each exercise, noting the objective and subobjectives, exercise type, administration mode, stimulus used, age group, total time in seconds, and source information when relevant. For the six open-ended exercises, scoring guides are included. Correct answers are marked on the exercise sheets. Unlike the first assessment, no performance or creative music writing exercises are included. (CK) Primary type of information provided by report: Assessment Instrument (Released Exercises).
