Report Card Grading
In music for the primary grades, students are graded on participation, not on musical ability. Kindergarten students do not receive grades on their report cards.
Music Skills Assessment
All students are regularly assessed on their music ability. Running records are kept of students’ ability on rhythm, singing voice, matching pitch, and other music skills in order to track improvement.
