The test is comprehensive and inclusive, including 85 selected-response questions and 3 constructed-response questions broken into two parts, Part A and Part B, respectively. The questions are intended to evaluate your knowledge and skills with concepts related to Art: Content and Analysis. These concepts are central to the study of art, and will cover topics including art making, historical and theoretical foundations of art and art analysis.
Part A includes some images, and will test your mastery of the following concepts: general art making, media and processes, materials and processes in an art historical context, the western tradition in art history, art beyond the western tradition and responding to art.
Part B is further divided into one 15-minute question that will test your grasp of the historical and theoretical foundations of art, and two 10-minute questions that test your knowledge of art making. For historical and theoretical foundations of art, you will be asked to select, identify and analyze a relevant, verifiable art historical example from memory. This work may not be your own or a student’s. For the second portion of Part B, you will need to provide four works of art in digital form no later than three days before your selected test date.
