The activities of the Canadian Awareness Project involved the development and analysis of an assessment of general knowledge and understanding of Canadian history, geography and citizenship as demonstrated by a sample of elementary, junior and senior high school students in provincially-funded schools. Included in this report are the phases outlining the project's activities, and results of the study. The six phases are: (1) initiation of the project, development of the terms of reference, and selection of the Advisory Technical Committees; (2) development and revisions of the content outlines in the three subject areas; (3) sequence of events involving item generation, development of an item pool, and selection of items for field tests; (4) field testing, scoring and analysis of field test items, deletion/revision of items and selection of final test items; (5) preparation of test booklets, printing, collating, distribution, administration of tests, processing of returns, scoring and analyzing final test results; and (6) tabulation and interpretation of results.
