Title:  Assessing the Arts: Selected NAEP Tasks and Scoring Guides for Grades 4 and 12 1997 Field Test. Dance, Music, Theatre, and Visual Arts
Description: This CD–ROM contains a total of 16 arts tasks for dance, music, theatre, and the visual arts at grades 8 and 12, developed but never used for the NAEP 1997 Arts Assessment. The CD contains the complete instructions given to the students, including any audio or visual components used as stimuli. The actual tasks given to students, whether written questions or creating or performing tasks are also given, along with the scoring guides used to evaluate student performance. Because of cost limitations and sampling problems, the 1997 arts assessment was only administered at the eighth-grade, and only covered music, theatre, and the visual arts. This new CD complements the original report card, also available in multi-media CD format, by including tasks for the fourth- and twelfth-grades and including tasks for dance.
