Assessment Kit is an organized way to create, assign, and grade engaging music theory and songwriting assignments based around our musical sketchpad, Hookpad.
The Assessment Kit exercise template is configurable so that students can compose in Hookpad, provide a written response, or both. The prompt contains written text and an optional Theory Tab. The student workspace can have Hookpad and a text field, as shown below. Students have the option of loading an existing Hookpad project into their exercise workspace.
Here is an example of an exercise where students are asked to write a melody over a chord progression.
To assign an exercise to a course, drag it from the exercises pane into the assigned exercises pane, as shown below. A due date and point value are added when assigning exercises.
After assigning an exercise to a course, every student in that course sees the exercise on their “My Assignments” page. Students complete and submit their assignments on www.hooktheory.com.
As students submit assignments, they show up on your “My Classwork" page. This is where you will go to assess, grade, and provide feedback on your students work. Your students see your grades and feedback on their "My Assignments" page, on the “Submitted” tab.
Grades for all assignments are automatically organized into a searchable digital grade book.
The Assessment Kit User Guide provides detailed instructions for creating exercises, assigning exercises, completing exercises (what your students see and do), grading student work, editing grades, and viewing your gradebook.
Assessment Kit is part of Hooktheory's Classroom technology suite that will help you teach music and songwriting in ways that keep students engaged, excited, and inspired.Learn more about Classroom
