Dr Pamela Onishi and Dr Imelda Caleon, Research Scientists at Office of Education Research (OER), published a paper titled "Measuring Critical Musicality" in Music Education Research.

The study focused on the development and psychometric evaluation of the 16-item Critical Musicality Scale. It was found that the reliability of each factor of critical musicality was satisfactory.  As additional evidence for the construct validity of the scale, it was found that all of the dimensions of critical musicality had significant positive correlations with the students’ behavioural and emotional engagement in music learning activities.

These results were drawn from an OER-funded project titled “Community Music Education: Towards the Development of New Pedagogies for the 21st Century”.
