• General Music Grading



    General music students receive a grade at the end of the 2nd quarter and at the end of the 4th quarter.


    Grades are based on a combinations of performance tests (rhythm, recorder, etc), written assignments, and projects.

    For performance tests I use a 4 point rubric to help students identify where they are at in their skill development.

    4 - I can do this without help. I could even teach it to someone else.

    3 - I can do this without help, but I might need to practice some more.

    2 - I can do this with some help from the teacher. I still have questions about this.

    1 - I am just starting to learn how to do this. I need help and have lots of questions.
