Music Assessment for Better Ensembles

Brian P. Shaw

Oxford University Press

This chapter will provide music educators with a deeper understanding of the grading process. Some elements of grades and grading are immediately apparent, while others lurk powerfully below the surface. Grades are to function as communication about student achievement. However, the often-arbitrary nature of grading policies and calculations means that their communicative function is less effective. Grades can facilitate learning in addition to their reporting function. Standards-Based Grading is an approach that emphasizes student achievement in grades, and the exclusion of nonacademic information such as timely assignment completion, attendance, and effort. Various grading procedures are discussed.
