My high school days were "Pre-technology" for me. I
showed maybe 5 slides relating to art
styles/artists/periods of art we studied. Students had
to answer a series of knowledge questions (multiple
choice) - and high order thinking questions for each
slide (short answer essays - see my Bloom's file for
sample questions as I no longer have those exams).
The second part of the exam was a hands-on like Jackie
posted only we didn't work that large. They did the
sample techniques on their exam paper. I found that
most students didn't put a lot of effort into the
hands on drawings - but I didn't count off much for
The third part of the exam was clean-up chores -- and
I really did grade them on that.
Note: Our exams were two hours long. I had to do
something to fill up that time slot.
