Bringing Teachers and Students to the Next Level through Effective Assessment

Hyatt Regency Albuquerque - Room: Enchantment E

Are you struggling with how manage student assessment, especially in your larger ensembles? This workshop is designed to help school orchestra teachers deepen their knowledge of the value of assessment and basic assessment concepts through a variety of hands-on activities. Topics to be addressed in this session will include:  ASTA Curriculum and NAfME Standards connections; assessment approaches (including tips for quick and effective assessment); individual student assessment strategies; and district-level assessment considerations. This hands-on workshop will engage participants in analyzing student work and creating assessments, with a focus on designing rubrics to evaluate individual student proficiency.

Led by Margaret Berg, University of Colorado Boulder, and Denese Odegaard, National Association for Music Education (NAfME)
