I generated this two-page pre-test/post-test to assess what my middle school instrumental music students knew. For teachers who have to show student growth through a non-performance assessment, this assessment would be easy to use. I used this assessment for several years and it helped to guide me in areas that were strengths and weaknesses for my students. The terms and definitions use the most common definitions. The sheet could be used as a handout, long-term goal setting, homework, pre- or post-test assessment, end of the year assessment, study guide, or for a substitute when you have to be out.
