Performance 1.3 - Student Performance (Self-Evaluation)

  1. Listen to the recording of yourself that you created for the Performance 1.2 - Student Performance (Teacher Evaluation) assignment. Follow along in the music and take note of any mistakes you made or things that you could have done better.
  2. You will be giving yourself a grade out of 3 in several categories and writing a 1-2 sentence comment about your performance in each category.
      • 3/3My performance in this category was excellent. I demonstrated the all the points exceptionally.
      • 2/3My performance in this category was good. I demonstrated most of the points proficiently.
      • 1/3My performance in this category was not my best work. I demonstrated some of the points; however, I am not proficient in this category yet.
  3. Copy the table below into the online text box or into a Word document and write in your answers.
  4. Some "thinking questions" have been included here to help you focus your listening. You do not have to answer these questions in your Student Comment. They are just there to give you an idea of some of the things your music teacher will be looking for when they grade your recording in the Performance 1.2 - Student Performance (Teacher Evaluation) assignment.
