Chapter 9 Grading in the Ensemble Classroom
Music Assessment for Better Ensembles

Brian P. Shaw

Oxford University Press

This chapter is an application of grading fundamentals to the ensemble music setting. Music grades have evolved to include many conventions that do not conform to the advice of many grading experts. Grades determined by student achievement with respect to foundational understandings and abilities, rather than concert music performance, are often the fairest and most educational. Areas of particular concern for music grades include home practice time, concert and rehearsal attendance, class participation, and extra credit. These and other issues are elucidated. Recommendations for educative music grades are included throughout.

Keywords:   Music grades, music grading, participation, practice, music power standards, music attendance, music participation, concert attendance, practice cards, practice records
