Proposal Title

Rubrics for Music Performance Disciplines [Pr-2]

Proposal Abstract

In the SoTL, rubrics have been considered highly effective tools for assessing students' academic performance. By using rubrics, teachers can indicate the criteria they emphasize in teaching, and it helps students identify what they need to focus on while studying. In music performance, however, it's quite challenging to create a generalized rubric since assessment of individual performance can be highly subjective. For instance, some teachers emphasize precision and accuracy, whereas others emphasize translation and expression. Nevertheless, a well-developed rubric helps students learn how to critique their performance based upon the actual criteria that their instructors use. Clearly defined criteria help students understand how to divide their performance into small segments, which need to be separately examined. By doing this, students can gain greater understanding about what they should look for in a good performance. Throughout this session, the development process for creating rubrics in music performance disciplines will be discussed.
