Using personal digital recorders as an assessment tool
Date: October 5, 2015
I am entertaining the notion of using personal digital recorders (PDR) to assessment my students' knowledge. The theory is that the student holds the PDR and sings into it during the regular class rehearsal. I then take the recording and assess the student outside of class. The idea is that students would be less intimidated with this method than singing solo or even in small groups. They would just be singing like they (should) do with the full choir in class. Also, assessing won't suck precious rehearsal time out of the class period.
Does anyone have any experience with this? If so, I have the following questions:
Any help anyone could give would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.
