Abstract


ABSTRACT: The inappropriate practical assessment of the Visual Arts for ideal practical evaluation has necessitated the general outcry on the factors responsible for it. This paper tries to investigate the factors responsible for the non-compliance with credible practical assessment in Visual Arts for quality certification. It is giving some insight into solutions that will help in stamping out these inhibiting factors against the credible practical assessment in Visual Arts. When more emphasis are laid on practical courses and standard practical test examination conducted, it will go a long way in solving the unemployment problem observed as possible fallout of assessment methods and emphasis paper qualification at the expense of practical practice. It is suggested that examination materials be provided at least a month to the commencement of examination, more time should be allotted to practical examinations, supervision of practical examination should be handled with more seriousness, and the joint assessment of practical examination works be introduced. Finally, it is recommend possible ways of conducting practical examination to all stake holders in Visual Arts in Nigeria.
