End-of-the Year Review and Final Test ​

  • Assign this to any student in your classes who has studied all 16 Music Memory pieces for a fun end-of-unit challenge! OR

  • Assign this to individual students in Google Classroom by selecting individual names in the “Assign to” list instead of “all students.” OR

  • To experience this as a team, gather students together on a video conferencing app (such as Zoom or Google Meet) and share your screen. Don’t forget to check the box for “share computer sound” when sharing. Open the form and complete it as students indicate which answer to select.

 

You will find the test format is very simple and is the same for 3rd – 5th graders. The selection titles for each multiple-choice question are read out loud before the music excerpt is played. Our goal was to provide a successful way to celebrate the learning that has occurred this whole year. Careful instructions are provided to be sure you are able to see the grades from your students who take the test.

Tips for Using with Students

  1. Remind students to watch and listen to the review pieces at the beginning of the test. If students use the link to listen to 30 seconds of each piece, they will need to close the tab with the review listening on it to return to the test tab.  

  2. Remind students to click submit when they are done with their test.

  3. The test begins with composer matching but then proceeds with the same format they are used to from previous assessments in the curriculum. Answer options are read aloud before they hear the test selection. They will hear each of the sixteen pieces once in the first sixteen questions. The last four questions will be different sections of previously heard selections.  

  4. Assign this to any student in your classes who has studied all 16 Music Memory pieces for a fun end-of-unit challenge!

  5. Assign this to individual students in Google Classroom by selecting individual names in the “Assign to” list instead of “all students.”

A student could also take this role and share the test from their computer.

  7. Celebrate! Send congratulations to students on school social media, send an e-card, or give them a call to say, “well done!”
