Art History - clarification of standards level 1

Art history clarification

One of the benefits of these standards is the ability of teachers to make overall judgements of students’ evidence.  An appropriate overall judgement will be based on the evidence of the student’s demonstration of understanding of the intent and requirements of the standard. 

This will be observed in:

  • The quality and scope of the student’s evidence
  • The use of descriptive or explanatory language
  • The use of art specific language and terminology
  • The detail and precise nature of supporting evidence

When making overall judgments, assessors must take care to base their decisions on evidence relevant to the requirements of the particular standard rather than on other information such as biographical information about an artist or superfluous details about the quality or style of an art work.  It would also be inappropriate to base overall judgements on presentation details such as length, essay style etc.
