Re: HS pre and post testing/Jancy

I'm very into what I do too- I teach 6th, 7th, and 8th grade and have been struggling with the testing. It sounds like what you're doing is a lot like what I'm doing. Our curriculum isn't the greatest either. I teach based on the national standards instead. I'm having a hard time figuring out what each student should know at what grade level. Since the new standards for visual arts come out this year that should help.
I didn't get the attachment......... Good luck.......

Sometimes Getty doesn't let attachments through so if
it doesn't go please tell me and I will email you in
private with it. I spent hours. I called 2 other HS
teachers in my county and they were no help, weren't
participating in the program. I also found out the art
guidelines are vague (ranked right up there with PE
and ESE!). I really get into what I teach, and a big
part of me wanted to set a standard so I did it
For the pre-portion of the test that was performance I
told the kids to put the information on another piece
of paper (value scale, tranpsarent,opaque---even had
them draw separate cirlces for stipple etc.) then I
had them answer the questions they could in blue pen.
I also told them write down what they "thought" they
might do for the performance pieces (sketchbook
entries). They are getting a good look at their final
exam, to be done in pencil. I will put all the
paperwork together at the end of the year (YIKES!).
Could be worth $1,000 dollars if I am picked. Lottery
I know, but like I said earlier I am into the
education and want to include as much as I can for
these kids prior to college. Sorry this is long.
Let me know what you think.
