Music Technical Report: Exercise Volume. Music Report No. 03-MU-20.
Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO. National Assessment of Educational Progress.
This technical report contains the released musical exercises used and the assessment data collected in a nationwide survey of music education conducted by the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). Nine-year-olds, 13-year-olds, 17-year-olds, and adults (ages 26-35) were asked questions designed to measure their attitudes toward music and their achievement in or knowledge of musical performance, musical notation and terminology, instrumental and vocal media, and music history and literature. Although the report contains only one-half of the music exercises used in the survey, assessment data for all the exercises administered are provided. (Some exercise texts are unreleased at this time because NAEP will administer these exercises again in the future to determine whether the performance level of Americans has improved or declined.) Assessment data include percentage results for the national sample and for each of the subpopulation samples grouped by region, sex, race, parental education, and size and type of community. A cassette tape recording that presents the musical selections used as stimuli in many of the released exercises is available from NAEP. Also available are computer data tapes that contain the original, unanalyzed response data for all of the exercises. (Author/RM) Primary type of information provided by report: Assessment Instrument (Released Exercises); Results (Exercise Level).
