Thumbs Up!

Thumbs Up! is NAQT’s series of practice-question collections in specific categories.

In each category, sets are available at four levels: middle school, introductory high school, high school, and advanced high school.

Each set is $15, with free shipping (at standard speed within the United States).

Thumbs Up! for Fine Arts

These sets consist of three packets, each with 30 tossups and 30 bonuses. They comprise approximately 20% painting, 7% architecture, 7% sculpture, plus additional visual arts questions to reach 50% visual art; 37% instrumental music; and 13% performing arts like opera and dance. This is approximately the same as NAQT’s high school fine arts distribution.

Currently, two sets are available at each of the high school levels. If there is sufficient demand, NAQT will release additional sets.
