Kurfman, Dana G.; And Others
A 3-part test measures the geography knowledge, skills, and understanding of secondary level students. Part 1, map skills and location, contains 20 questions involving the use of three maps: an imaginary sketch map, a contour map, and a political map of the world. Part 2 consists of 20 questions covering physical geography. Students analyze outline maps of Africa and the Western hemisphere, a cross-section diagram on landforms, and a temperature and precipitation graph, and answer general questions on geography and resources. In a final section focusing on human geography, 35 questions test students' understanding of a transportation map, two types of bar graphs, and their general knowledge of world populations. (LP)
