Music grades are based on participation, and at the end of each class, all students are evaluated on their participation on that particular day:
5 (100%) = I’m doing my best and being respectful. I’m participating fully, and I am using correct Music vocabulary. I understand what the lesson is about.
4 (90%) = I’m doing fine, but not my best. I’m usually on task, and I sometimes use correct Music vocabulary. I understand what the lesson is about or I asked for help to understand.
3 (80%) = I need to control myself more. I try sometimes, OR I’m doing okay, but I should try to answer more questions. I didn’t understand the lesson but I asked for help.
2 (70%) = I’m off task most of the time. I try a little bit. I don’t understand what the lesson is about and I did NOT ask for help.
1 (60%) = I need an adult to remind me to do better. I don’t care or try much at all. I don’t understand what the lesson is about and I did NOT ask for help.
The average that you see on progress reports/report cards are the average of all of their daily participation grades. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me!
