Perfect for your classroom

Musition has awesome tools for student assessment & tracking so there’s less time marking and more time teaching!  It’s so simple to set a quiz, worksheet or a complex exam!

Assessment

Record Keeping & Assessment

While working through each of the topics, Musition instantly marks the student's work and keeps record of their progress for future assessment. No need to manually mark tests so you'll have more time for teaching!

Student Scores

Many items are recorded when students practise their music theory in Musition.  Firstly, the syllabus, topic and level that the student has been working on.  We also record how long they practised, and their scores, on a daily basis.

Many reports are available for the instructor, allowing them to easily provide students with advice directly related to their areas of practise.

Class Management

Classes allow you to group students and then assign tasks that are most relevant to their age and ability.

They are simple to setup and open up many powerful features;

  • Selecting available topics
  • Assigning appropriate syllabuses
  • Setting tests & worksheets
  • Assigning courses

The professor is another class feature, a simple and effective tool for guiding students through practise levels, with thresholds set by the instructor.

In addition to this, many features such as question retries are set by class, ensuring that students in different courses have the correct settings for their age and ability.

We also now allow students to belong to multiple classes.  This gives teachers endless ways to organise students, and when combined with the new ‘hidden’ classes, makes it very simple to address the needs of a diverse group of students.

Tasks & Worksheets

Create theory worksheets in minutes, with automatic grading and assessment.

Tests are one of the most popular features in Musition.  A test can contain questions from any syllabus, topic or level, and may also include library questions.

  • Assign a test to any class
  • Optional random question selection
  • Optional time limits
  • Library questions
  • Set due dates and timeslots
  • Weighted scoring options

Tests can be used for many many different types of activities; short quizzes, longer worksheets and formal assessment. It’s very common for teachers to assign their students two or three short tasks each week, a practise that makes reporting a breeze.

Assessment & Reports

Musition has been designed from the ground up to make a teacher’s life simpler, and save valuable time!

Scores are kept separately for the following areas;

  • Practise

Comprehensive reports covering all these areas are available, with the most popular listed below.

  • Student summary
  • Student activity log

Rising Software provides Solfege, Piano and Guitar controllers for students to use.

Content

The content library contains hundreds of notation excerpts and questions for your students to practise.  It’s very simple for teachers to import their own items, which can then be used in any topic, test or course, ensuring that curriculum requirements are being met.

There are many possibilities when creating questions, with amazing control over the student experience.

  • Notation entry – transposition, rewriting
  • Notation highlighting – notes, bars and parts
  • Chord symbol entry – figured or contemporary
  • Multiple choice – text, image or notation answers
  • Tapping – reading & tap along

Notation

Musition now features an integrated notation editor.  Unlimited parts and bars, control over beaming and grouping, anacrusis support and ties allow you to create small examples very quickly.

If you have created notation items in other software, you can easily import these using MusicXML!

Lessons

Each topic in Musition has it’s own customised lesson screen, containing notation and audio examples and detailed explanations of the relevant music theory subject.  These are invaluable for student reference and teachers can integrate lessons into their own customised courses.

Courses & Tests

Teachers often use courses and tests to gain further control over curriculum and content.  They give teachers the power to specify the exact questions that students will attempt.

Tests are very flexible, questions can be chosen from any syllabus, topic or level.  Importantly, library questions can also be selected, this allows creation of theory exams with absolute certainty over the content to be delivered.

Courses are sequenced pathways that include questions and lessons.  When setting questions in courses, teachers can set thresholds that must be hit before a student can progress to the next stage.

Scores for tests and courses are stored separately and they can be taken multiple times if allowed by the teacher.
