This is a quiz appropriate for probably 3rd-6th beginners to music. I’ve realized that most kids easily get basic symbols confused, and often do not know the name of the symbols they are reading. This assessment gives some brief explanation that reinforces concepts already learned while requiring students to attach the symbol with its name. For example, question two asks “The treble clef is used when composers write music for children’s voices, and also when composers write music for instruments that play HIGH notes. Please circle ALL instruments that play HIGH notes.”
This simple quiz asks students to:
Identify the symbol given (treble clef)
Identify which of tthe three instruments listed play high notes.
Identify the name of the staff.
Distinguish between which symbols are notes and which are not.
Distinguish between the repeat sign and a double bar line.
With a bonus response question about what instrument is the student’s favorite and why.
