Students will choose a scale type, such as major, minor, mixolydian, or the pentatonic set (major or minor). After performing the scale/set, the student will improvise a melody that uses the same scale/set. The scale and ensuing improvisation should be audio recorded for later scoring. The teacher will prepare a list of students to tell them the order in which they will perform.
This item has been voluntarily field-tested by Michigan teachers with a non-representative sample of students.
