Assessment in secondary music

4 Key Issue 4: How do we use assessment evidence to plan for learning?

You can experience this free course as it was originally designed on OpenLearn, the home of free learning from The Open University – openlearn/ education/ assessment-secondary-music/ content-section-0 [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)]

In this final section you will consider the ways in which assessment information can be used to enable a teacher to evaluate and reflect upon their own assessment and teaching in relation to their students’ learning. We pose a series of questions and discussion points to enable you to structure your thinking when planning for teaching, learning and assessing in the music classroom. We ask you to consider issues relating to evaluating and reflecting upon your own teaching under three main headings:

  1. Assessment: a question of value
  2. Teacher as observer
  3. Teacher as musical critic.
