After teaching your students about the different families of music instruments, you can assess their knowledge with this quiz. The quiz checks you students' understanding of musical instruments in four ways:
1. Identifying the instruments by utilizing audio clips (5 questions)
2. Explaining how the different categories of instruments make sound (6 short answer questions)
3. Sorting instruments into appropriate families (20 instruments)
4. Identifying the instruments by sight (8 pictures)
This assessment is a great way to see that your students have fully grasped the families of musical instruments.
This quiz was created for a 6th grade class (middle school level beginners), but is suitable for any beginning level class.
** Audio clips are not included for Part 1 of the assessment, but can be easily accessed on the internet **
