This document contains 99 exercises from the 1971-72 social studies assessment. The intended audience is researchers who need detailed information about the exercises and state and local educators who want to use the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) exercises in their own assessment programs. The document includes a copy of the exercise, complete documentation about administration and scoring procedures, and the national percentage results. The exercises are classified according to the three broad areas of attitudes, knowledges, and skills. They are either multiple choice, short answer (one or two words up to several sentences), or longer answers (paragraph or more). In the 1971-72 assessment of social studies, 9-year-olds, 13-year-olds, 17-year-olds and young adults aged 26-35 were asked a variety of questions designed to measure achievement of five broad educational objectives in social studies. These objectives are (1) that Americans should have curiosity about human affairs; (2) that they should use analytic-scientific procedures effectively; (3) that they should be sensitive to creative-intuitive methods of explaining the human condition; (4) that they should have knowledge relevant to the major ideas and concerns of social scientists; and (5) that they should have a reasoned commitment to the values that sustain a free society.
