The following quiz is a 15-question multiple choice quiz on the 2011 film "The Artist" directed by Michel Hazanavicius that can be used in an English, film studies, or media studies class. This assessment is not a trivia quiz about the story or production anecdotes; it is also not a simple, low-level comprehension quiz based on events in the film. The quiz contains high level, critical thinking questions on the understanding through evaluation levels of Bloom's revised taxonomy model. The quiz assesses a taker's understanding of the film's characterization (including tragic flaws), cinematography, costume design, editing, film history, foreshadowing, inferences, mise en scene, mood, plot, setting, sociocultural context, sound (i.e. diegetic sound, nondiegetic sound, and sound effects), style, symbolism, themes, and tone. An additional "bonus" 16th question that an instructor can substitute for another question is also provided.
This quiz is a summative assessment and can be paired with a packet, which is available as a separate purchase, that can be used as a formative assessment to accompany a viewing of the film.
