    Participation/Rehearsal Skills Grades

    Each week, students will receive a Rehearsal Skills Assessment Grade. The weekly assessment will be graded on a 4 – point scale.

     

    4 - I consistently:

    Have my pencil for writing in my music.

    Have my folder with my chorus music in it.

    Actively and respectfully participate vocal warm ups.

    Actively and respectfully participate in the choral rehearsal.

    3 - Most of the time I:

    Have my pencil for writing in my music.

    Have my folder with my chorus music in it.

    Actively and respectfully participate vocal warm ups.

    Actively and respectfully participate in the choral rehearsal.

    2 - I rarely:

    Have my pencil for writing in my music.

    Have my folder with my chorus music in it.

    Actively and respectfully participate vocal warm ups.

    Actively and respectfully participate in the choral rehearsal.

    1 - I consistently displayed any of the following behaviors:

    I did not have my pencil for writing in my music.

    I did not have my folder with my chorus music in it.

    I did not actively and respectfully participate vocal warm ups.

    I did not actively and respectfully participate in the choral rehearsal.

     

     

    If a student is 100% prepared (folder, pencil, participates in warm ups/rehearsal) they will receive a “4” for their weekly rehearsal assessment. If a student has 1 day where they do not meet the 2 or more of the level “4” requirements; if they have two errors they will still be marked as a “4” for their weekly grade. This allows them one mark-down without impacting their grade. The weekly grade will be assessed, continuing down to a 1 where any of the listed behaviors are demonstrated or lack their necessary materials, on all the days they are in attendance in chorus, excepting Wednesdays. If a student is marked with an excused absence, their grade will be based on whichever days that week they are in attendance. No student will receive a “0” as a grade.

    Rehearsal skills assessments will still fall under the “assessments” category for the gradebook and are 80% of a student’s overall grade.
