Development of Learning Outcomes Specifications and Concomitant Measurement Criteria for the Elementary School Curriculum in Art.
This report documents the development of instructional objectives and accompanying measurement criteria for an elementary school art curriculum for grades 3-5. Results are from the three schools which participated in the study: an inner-city school with no special emphasis on art; a suburban school with much emphasis on art; and a transitional school with average art emphasis. The instruments used in Color Understanding and Drawing of Figures are described, as well as the criteria for evaluating the drawings. Graphs and charts present student performance in each phase of the assessment; several graphs depict the relationship between I.Q. based scores and actual scores. Photographic illustrations show acceptable, borderline, and unacceptable performance on the drawing of human figures. Grade level expectations are presented, based on the concept that children can learn to derive ideas from the real and imagined world. These expectations are grouped according to subject matter: people, animals, plants, buildings, vehicles, and machines. Instructional objectives and measurement criteria are presented. (NE)
