The item map below contains selected item descriptions mapped to the 2008 NAEP music responding scale. (All of the items on this map are classified "responding.") The map helps to illustrate the knowledge and skills demonstrated by students performing at different scale scores on the 2008 assessment. Scores for the 25th and 75th percentiles are also indicated since achievement levels were not set for the arts assessment. The items that are hyperlinked are in the NAEP Questions Tool, where the item, scoring guide, key, student responses, and performance data can be viewed. Items are labeled by type (multiple choice [MC] or constructed response [CR]).
Constructed-response items for which students could earn partial credit may appear on the map multiple times, once for each level of credit. Descriptions are worded differently, depending on the level of credit given.
