Designed for K-12 music teachers, Assessment for Music Educators provides the necessary tools for meaningful assessment within school music programs. Starting with an understanding of what assessment is-and its applications within the field of music teaching-class participants will develop assessment strategies for their own music programs. Specifically, methods of assessment will address three primary areas: student achievement, linked to learning outcomes; program evaluation, connected to curricular goals; and application of standards, with an eye on the new National Core Music Standards. Class members will use sample lessons, assignments, and curricula from which to develop tailored assessment models for their music programs.
