Assessment in Music Education

By Martin Fautley

Oxford Music Education

ISBN: 978-0193362895


Assessment is the bane of many teachers' lives. This book makes the case for formative assessment as a better way to improve learning and raise standards than an all-embracing assessment at the end of a year or key stage. As well as providing an overview, it also contains practical tips for assessment for classroom and instrumental teachers, particularly at secondary level.
