- How would you answer the following questions:

- Why are they called “liberal”?
- Why are they called “arts”?
- What do you think of how Andrew and Christopher describe the fine arts? In what sense do you understand the fine arts as arts characterized by a finis (an end, something completed or finished)? How does this description cohere with or differ from your original associations with the term “fine arts”?
- In what sense are the liberal arts “liberating arts of truth perception”?
- Andrew says that assessment can bless students. In what ways can you imagine this happening?
- In what ways is your own assessment of student work personal, prompt, loving, practical, and actionable? In which areas might your current assessment practices not serve these ends?
- How might we best assess knowledge of facts?
- How might we best assess skills?
- How might we best assess ideas?
- How would you summarize Andrew’s description of wisdom? How do the liberal arts help a student to grow in wisdom?
