1 Race categories exclude persons of Hispanic ethnicity.
NOTE: Students were assessed on their ability to observe, describe, analyze, and evaluate existing works of art. The average scores for visual arts are reported on a scale ranging from 0 to 300, with the average set at 150. Due to small sample size, data for American Indians/Alaska Natives did not meet reporting standards.
