Music Education for Life: Music Assessment, Part 1--What and Why
Shuler, Scott C.
Music Educators Journal, v98 n2 p10-13 Dec 2011
Assessment is both essential and a potentially powerful positive force. Music teachers need to provide assessment evidence to survive in today's data-driven school environment. However, the more important reasons they must assess are to improve their professional effectiveness as teachers, to improve student learning, and to help them advocate for excellent music programs. In this article, the author examines some of the key roles that assessment should play in every music teacher's work. (Contains 1 figure and 5 notes.)
