Product Description
When our district implemented benchmark testing in the middle of the fall semester, I wanted to connect it to what we were already doing in music class. These quizzes are built around songs we were learning at the time. This assessment is based on on a fundamental belief that we know what something is by knowing what it's not, which is one of the tenets of Dr. Edwin Gordon's Music Learning Theory (www.giml.org). You can change the titles and the pictures to go with what you are doing in class.

We discussed and practiced major and minor tonalities by naming the tonality and singing corresponding tonal patterns for each song (this is something we do with almost every song). During the quiz, students listened to 10 series of patterns featuring tonic and dominant pitches in the tonality and keyality of the songs, audiated the tonality, and circled the appropriate image. The songs were a great reference for my young audiators. You can create your own answer key to correspond with the songs you decide to refer to.
