Assessments can be tricky in the general music setting. So much can seem subjective, and with so many students and so little class time, the task can seem impossible! This kit is intended to make assessment in the general music classroom simpler.

User notes with instructions for use
Assessment rubrics, organized by skill / concept and sorted by grade level (fully editable Word and PDF formats)
