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.
