Critical Listening and Assessing Group Performance Skills in the Music Classroom
This assessment has five parts. First, students will review (play or sing) a song or portion of a song that they are presently working on in class. Second, the teacher will record the students’ performance as a group. Third, the students will listen to the recording and then score their performance using a rubric that highlights appropriate musical expression and technical accuracy. Fourth, students will explain their ratings on the Student Rating and Rationale Worksheet, citing specific examples that support the scores they selected. Fifth, students will identify three performance praises and three performance suggestions based on their evaluations. The teacher will score the students work using the Teacher Scoring Rubric.
It is assumed that students have a working understanding of appropriate music terminology encompassing technical and expressive elements in performance.
This item has been voluntarily field-tested by Michigan teachers with a non-representative sample of students.
