KS3 End of Year Art
Name: Teaching Group:
The Stonehenge School End of Year Art Assessment
At the end of a key stage every student will sit a short assessment paper lasting 50 minutes in length. For
many this will not be enough time as the drawing tasks in this assessment can require further time.
Your teachers will be assessing your knowledge and understanding of the concepts of art you have
explored so far. The questions are varied some you may just tick a box, but others may ask for your
opinion! When asked to explain try to write a thoughtful, well planned response.
The possible amount of marks from the question appears in a bubble at the top of the page
If you become stuck with a question…go onto the next one and come back later to the ones you missed.
A reminder: You are to complete this paper in silence using pencils and colouring pencils where needed.
