Assessment Technologies and Strategies for the Instrumental Music Classroom

Clinic Synopsis:

How can technology be used as an assessment tool without becoming a burden or distraction from the process of making music? How can we better use the information from those assessments to plan and improve our curriculum? This clinic will focus on the challenge of creating useful, high quality assessments for students in instrumental music programs through the use of online and desktop based software and other tools.
