This package includes two rubrics intended for music ensembles / groups. Both rubrics are used each year for our school's inter-mural music competition. The judges are always non-musicians, so the wording of the rubrics has been put into layman's terms as much as possible.
The first rubric is used for our grades 2 - 5 students. Handed out to students beforehand, this rubric uses emoticons (sad, content and happy) to depict the different achievement levels. Underneath, you see an explanation of the levels for the judges.
The second rubric is used for our grades 6 - 12 students. While it, too, uses layman's terms, its vocabulary is more advanced for the older students.
* Our intra-mural music competition always features music ensembles, and thus these rubrics are intended for multiple performers. To use it for a soloist, simply ignore the strands that refer to ensemble-specific issues (e.g. balance).
