I am fortunate to have had the distinct pleasure of moderating a panel on assessment practices in music education this morning at the Indiana Music Educators Professional Development Conference.
The panel consisted of three terrifically dedicated and incredibly intelligent teachers:
- Lisa Sullivan, Mohawk Trails Elementary School
- Laura E Helms, Bloomfield JR/SR High School (choral emphasis)
- Soo Han, Carmel HS (instrumental emphasis)
They each shared their insights regarding the value and purpose of assessment in music and how to approach designing an assessment system that was also practical and pragmatic in its execution.
