Music Curriculum Evaluation Report.
Stoneberg, Bert, Jr.
The Music Curriculum Steering Committee of the Greater Albany (Oregon) Public School District 8J developed its own tests and evaluation procedures to accumulate data on music achievement and performance levels from students in third, fifth, eighth, and eleventh grades. Tests for third and fifth grade students focused on musical notation, listening skills, and design, while eighth and eleventh grade tests highlighted interpreting notation, listening skills, and relating music to man's historical development. Part 1 of this document presents the evaluation rationale, music program goals, and curriculum offerings. Part 2 describes the achievement assessment instruments, while part 3 provides the written test results for each selected grade level. Results of music performance skills tests, for a random sample of these students, are presented in part 4. Part 5 summarizes the findings from a music teaching staff survey. Four appendices include the written tests for each selected grade level, the 1987-1988 distribution of scores, and a test-item analysis. A fifth appendix contains the elementary level vocal skills performance scales and the secondary level choral and instrumental music performance scales. Tables and charts are included. (JHP)
