Kentucky Core Content for Arts and Humanities Assessment.
Kentucky State Dept. of Education, Frankfort.
Using national sources, the Kentucky Core Content development committee defined the arts as creating, performing, and responding to dance, music, theater; the visual arts; and literature. The committee defined the humanities as the beliefs, thoughts, and traditions of humankind as reflected in history; philosophy; religion; dance; music; theater; the visual arts; and literature. The Core Content for Arts and Humanities Assessment, in combination with the Academic Expectations, provides the focus for assessment on the Kentucky Core Content Test (KCCT). The Core Content for Arts and Humanities Assessment is based on Kentucky's Learning Goals and Academic Expectations and has been influenced by various national standards and current work from other states. In this booklet, Core Content for Arts and Humanities Assessment is arranged in a matrix that shows the relationship of the arts to the humanities and divides achievement expectations in the arts into three categories: creating, performing, and responding. The arts are listed on the left side of the matrix. Since the creating, performing, and responding sections of the Core Content lead students to develop and demonstrate an appreciation for the arts, the humanities is represented on the matrix by the responding category and the resulting appreciation, and encompasses all the arts. The creating, performing, and responding categories at the top of the matrix indicate the teaching and learning processes for the arts. Code numbers are listed before each content statement and used to identify, track, and collect data on KCCT questions. AH represents arts and humanities, while levels are indicated as E (elementary), M (middle school), and H (high school). Other numerals indicate the arts discipline, the content strand, the artistic process, and the specific content bullet. (BT)
