The social Studies Assessment Program was a province-wide assessment of Social Studies concepts, skills, and attitudes in grades 3, 6, 9, and 12 in Manitoba (Canada) carried out during April, 1984. Designed to provide a profile of student performance on program objectives, the test was administered to a representative sample of students at each grade level. Teachers were given the option of testing additional students to compare their results to those of the provincial sample for each objective and skill area. This document contains the test, test manual, and scoring key for the grade 9 assessment. The 123-question test covers the four Social Studies program objectives: (1) knowledge, (2) values and attitudes; (3) thinking and research skills; and (4) social participation. Most questions are multiple choice, but some require written responses. The manual contains an overview of of the assessment program, general test information, and specific directions for administering the test and returning test materials. While the answer key is provided, machine scoring for the multiple choice questions by Management Information Services, Manitoba Department of Education is recommended. (BS)
