Day 1 focuses on gathering evidence of student learning in the music room:

  • Performance (singing, playing instruments)
  • Musical knowledge (such as rhythm, terms & symbols, instruments)
  • Composition, and
  • Assessment practices (rubrics, checklists, feedback, retakes, technology-assisted, time management, documentation).

  • The power of pre- and post-assessments

  • Using item analysis
  • Performance assessment.

Both days include some collaborative work time to be able to apply ideas and strategies to your own classroom.
