Assessment of Composing in the Lower Secondary School in the English National Curriculum
Fautley, Martin; Savage, Jonathan
British Journal of Music Education, v28 spec iss 1 p51-67 Mar 2011
This article reports the results of research into teachers' practices concerning the assessment of composing at Key Stage 3 in the National Curriculum for Music in England. It finds that many teachers are using NC levels for assessing individual pieces of work, a process for which they were never intended. It also finds that teachers find it difficult to show progress using NC levels, and that many teachers have rewritten the levels into child-friendly language, thus causing further difficulties.
