Using Longitudinal Scales Assessment for Instrumental Music Students
Simon, Samuel H.
Music Educators Journal, v101 n1 p86-92 Sep 2014
In music education, current assessment trends emphasize student reflection, tracking progress over time, and formative as well as summative measures. This view of assessment requires instrumental music educators to modernize their approaches without interfering with methods that have proven to be successful. To this end, the Longitudinal Scales Assessment is described and examined as a component of student evaluation that contributes to broader educational goals.
