The Second Assessment of Art, 1978-79. Released Exercise Set.
Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO. National Assessment of Educational Progress.
The document presents multiple-choice exercises designed by the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) to measure the ability of students (ages 9 through 17) to recognize and describe various works of art. The objective is to provide classroom teachers easy access to released and tested art assessment materials. For each exercise, information is presented on objectives, time required, administration, photographic and source information, and age groups for which the exercise is most appropriate. Exercises and documentation are in loose leaf format to facilitate sorting and copying. Most exercises involve photographs of art works. The document is presented in three major sections. Section I reviews assessment procedures upon which the exercises are based and explains documentation which accompanies the exercises. Section II presents objectives used to develop the exercises (including that students should know about art and perceive and respond to various aspects of art), describes the content range of the exercises, and offers a directory of exercises. The final section, which comprises the bulk of the document, presents approximately 100 multiple-choice exercises. Students are directed to view photographs of art works and answer questions concerning major themes, quality, color intensity, and the importance of art to the human experience.
