Citizenship and Social Studies. Released Exercises from the 1975-76 Assessment.
Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO. National Assessment of Educational Progress.
A series of exercises were developed and used by the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) second citizenship/social studies assessment (1975-76). This volume provides a copy of each exercise, as well as the complete documentation about administration and scoring procedures for each exercise that is being released. The bulk of the document contains exercises developed to measure citizenship objectives, and the remaining pages contain exercises developed to measure social studies objectives. In this assessment, 9-year-olds, 13-year-olds, and 17-year-olds were asked questions related to seven broad objectives in citizenship (show concern for the well being and dignity of others; support just law and the rights of all individuals; know the main structure and functions of their governments, participate in democratic civic improvement; understand important world, national, and local civic problems; approach civic decisions rationally; and help and respect their own families) and five broad objectives in social studies (have curiosity about human affairs, use analytic-scientific procedures effectively, be sensitive to creative-intuitive methods of explaining the human condition, have knowledge relevant to the major ideas and concerns of social scientists, and have a reasoned commitment to the values that sustain a free society).
