Question

Dear Grade Doctor,
I teach instrumental music in grades 5-8 in both elementary and middle schools. Oregon has passed house bill 2022 which requires all students to be evaluated on profeciency and standard based grading. One of our arts standards is "Create, Present, Perform" stated as: "Use essential elements and organizational principles to create, present and/or perform works of art for a variety of purposes". In your opinion, as a summative assessment, can we assign a grade for attendance at an evening concert to fulfill our "create, present, perform" standard?

No, simply attending does not meet that standard.
