MUSIC EDUCATION Vincent Conyngham, director of music at Swanbourne House School, Buckinghamshire MK17 OHZ is researching a teaching profile (Assessment in School Music: Years 7-11) for a Fellowship Diploma in Music Education, which covers key stage 34 assessment practices. He would be grateful if colleagues could fill in his questionnaire or send him copies of their assessment schemes.

Last year at Beacon Community College, Crowborough, East Sussex TN6 2AS, the difference in exam results was 26 per cent, so the school has seconded John Davies and Jackie Cooper to investigate boys' underachievement and explore ways forward. They would like to hear from interested schools.
