Smart Goal and Standards being addressed.

Smart Goal:

85% of 4th grade students in music class will score 80% or higher on our sixteenth-note rhythm post test by March 20, 2013.

Standards used:

Strand I: Artistic Foundations

Standard 2: Read and notate music using the standard notation such as quarter, half, and eighth notes and rests, the lines and spaces of the treble clef, and time signatures.

Strand II:

Artistic Process: Create or Make

Standard 1: Improvise and compose rhythms, melodies and accompaniments using voice or instruments to express a specific musical idea.

Show what you know and read the following rhythm patterns.

strategies to meet our goal
Strategies to meet our goal:


*Compose their own four beat rhythm patterns.

*Play 16th note rhythms on various instruments.

*Perform their compositions for each other.

*Practice the rhythms from the test.



Jeff met our goal but the rest did not meet the goal.

Effect Size: (In an assessment workshop that Denae attended we found out a way to find the effect size between the pre and post test to see if our students increased the learning. We were told that anything above a .4 means that we were effectively teaching the students the concept)

Jennifer's effect size: 2.33 for one class and 1.4 for the other class

Susan's effect size: 1.35

Jeffrey's effect size: 1.19

Denae's effect size: 1.59 for one class and 1.74 for the other class

  • Specific attention we gave to 16th notes provided mastery instead of just exposure.
  • New teachers to the district brought new ideas to the table.
  • Our students took this PLC goal seriously.
  • The active assessment was challenged by:


-Scheduling (limited time)

  • Our PLC group was cohesive, dedicated, and flexible.
  • We believe that PLC groups thrive when the members are:

-Like minded


-Focused on student achievement

where do we go from here
Where do we go from here?
  • Starting in earlier grades.
  • We need to provide more strategies to continually improve student achievement.
  • More opportunity to collaborate with music colleagues with an open mind.
  • Used our results to shape our future teaching.
