An Assessment of Visual Learning. Grade 3.
This assessment guide represents a method for evaluating visual arts achievement by third graders. The artwork presented can be used to determine whether students have met learning objectives and are ready to advance, and also as a diagnostic tool for school improvement. The guide is based on selected sample learning objectives from "State Goals for Learning and Sample Learning Objectives: Fine Arts." These objectives have been formulated into a taxonomic design that measures the following parameters: (1) identification of terms, tools, and processes; (2) understanding of affective intent; (3) ability to form non-verbal cognitive deductions; and (4) sensitivity to perceptual aspects. The guide demonstrates the possibility of a standardized approach to the evaluation of art achievement. There are 52 pages of illustrations ranging from black and white photographs of tools and artifacts to full-color reproductions of paintings by famous artists. Each pages consists of two or more "boxes" containing the illustrations, along with printed questions requiring the child to select the right answers among the boxes. A teacher's guide is included. An appendix lists the sample learning objectives. (SLD)
