LAI 554 Measurement and Evaluation in Music

Study of mental measurement concepts as they apply to teacher-made tests in music and standardized music aptitude and music achievement test batteries. Test manuals are examined in detail, in conjunction with the audition of specific batteries, to provide for the proper utilization of the materials. Implications for assessment of National Voluntary Music Standards and the New York State Learning Standards will be reviewed; a professional plan for assessing music learning for the programs they lead will be developed and will include performance observation, and portfolio assessment; materials useful for in-service workshops on aspects of music assessment within participant's specialties will be created and pilot-tested.
