Need to listen to and provide feedback for a bunch of band students? This rubric is a great timesaver in the classroom! You can listen to a student play, then provide quick feedback for areas that were strengths and areas that need improvement. The "criteria for quality" listed in the center boxes are simply the highest scoring boxes on the performance rubric to use as a reference/baseline when assessing.
I like having the flexibility of being able to write specific comments for each category of the rubric where needed. For me this provides more helpful feedback for students and allows them to more easily identify their areas of strength and weakness than with a traditional rubric.
