Re: Semester Finals in Art Class?

Depends on the grade level and the emphasis.

Sixth grade has three short essay and six fill-in-the-blank questions
(elements and principlesl).

Seventh grade has a take-home essay, critiquing a painting never discussed
before in art class.

Eighth graders chose their own painting to critique.

I would like to hear from other middle, junior and high school art teachers
on this question.
What do you give students for their final semester test in art class? I
have usually structured my tests with 1/2 multiple, t/f, matching, fillin
blanks; 1/4 drawing eval. and ; 1/4 essay. How do you format your semester
test? I want to be able to grade them quickly (or as soon as possible).
In the past our administration has wanted essay/written part of the overall
I am looking forward to what you suggest!
