A Preliminary Study of Assessment Progression: Evaluation of Assessment for Learning Lessons and Summative Assessment Tasks in General Music Programme (GMP)

Project Number
AFR 03/14 LWS

Project Duration
November 2014 - September 2018


This proposed MAF-funded research project focuses on identification of subjective-specific (Music) and localised ‘Singaporean’ formative assessment practices, developmentally appropriate music assessment tasks and standards of learning. This research will potentially push the boundaries of professional learning for music teachers on aligning innovative teaching/learning practices with developmentally appropriate Assessment for Learning (AfL) practices and summative assessment tasks. It also has the potential of evolving into a longer-term study on developing a framework of assessment progression for understanding expected proficiency of standards of deep learning across stages of musical development, while concurrently acquiring specific 21st century competencies. This proposed research project will be a joint collaboration between NIE’s CTL and OER research team, and Singapore Teachers’ Academy of the aRts (STAR) officers.
