This assessment will ask students to individually create a short melody or jingle solo based upon the criteria outlined in the task. Teachers should modify this model plan to match the instructional level of their students.
Students will be assessed on their ability to correctly notate a melody that is 12 or more measures in length, correctly notate in the chosen key signature, correctly notate in the chosen time signature with the correct number of beats in each measure, and correctly notate using a variety of rhythmic values.
NOTE: Phase 2, in which students notate their compositions, is optional. The elements related to Phase 2 are delineated in this booklet.
This item has been voluntarily field-tested by Michigan teachers with a non-representative sample of students.
