Essential Capabilities: Interpretation, Writing
Translating visual texts into words tests both one's acuity of vision and verbal precision. Moreover, interpreting visual signs as historical evidence - indeed as forms of propaganda - also tests the limits of interpretation, in this case interpretation rooted in the conventions of the time in which the works of art were made.
