Scale Your Way to Music Assessment is a hands-on, step-by-step action plan for using assessment to improve your teaching and your students’ performances.

This book and CD-ROM describe in detail how to teach students to become not only accurate and consistent assessors of musical performance, but how to meaningfully self- and peer-assess and set goals for practicing and improving the performance of a group. Authors Paul Kimpton and Del Harnisch show you how to:

  • Generate a list of musical skills

...and more, all with the goal of empowering learners and educators with assessment. The extensive range of topics covered includes:
  • Tips on developing performance assessments
  • Music department goals and how they align with district goals
  • How to develop written assessments
  • Tips on test writing
  • Writing course goals
  • Sample written questions
  • Helping a program realize its vision
  • Test-making programs
  • Developing performance assessments
  • Test assessment software
  • Writing course objectives
  • State and national standards
  • How to develop listening assessments
  • School and district goals
  • How to involve students in taking responsibility for improving skill

Also included are six extensive appendixes with actual written and listening tests, outlines of a four-year testing program for band, choir, and orchestra, a listing of websites and email addresses, a glossary of terms, and more. The accompanying CD-ROM includes sample data, tests, music examples, and reference material.

Everything you need to begin developing a quality music assessment program is right here.

A music educator for over 33 years, Paul Kimpton recently retired from his position as Director of Bands and Department Chairman at Hinsdale South High School (Darien, Illinois).
