Assessment in Music Education provides a very welcome 'bible' for understanding every aspect of assessment in music education . . . In general the writing style is accessible - a real achievement with such a multi-faceted and complex topic. In the more theoretical sections, Fautley makes a real effort to simplify concepts to communicate them effectively to his readers . . . Assessment in Music Education is a well-referenced compendium of information on all aspects of the topic. Whether or not the present government decides to continue the current emphasis on assessment in the cloassroom, this will remain a standard work in the field. * Bette Gray-Fow, Classroom Music, Autumn 2010 *
Fautley has a genius for the visual model when summing up the discourse of assessment . . . Not the formulaic version of formative assessment which often permeates UK schooling, but that which is based upon a rich dialogue between pupils and teachers . . . Music education has been in need of a serious treatise on assessment for some time now, and this accessible and rigorous book fits the bill. After reading it no music educator has an excuse for not engaging with effective assessment practice or not having strategies that go beyond learning objectives, levelling and setting targets. Here Fautley draws out a myriad of possibilities from simple ideas supported with a sound theoretical underpinning. This book will be important to teachers of all types in all contexts as well as teacher educators, policymakers, academics, head teachers and those providing continuing professional development. Look forward to the next volume! * Chris Philpott, Music Education Research, August 2012 *
Assessment in Music Education provides a detailed but very readable exploration of the theory and practice of assessment in the classroom, largely at Key Stage 3 . . . It is the most thoughtful exposition I know of teaching and learning in the Key Stage 3 National Curriculum, even if its conclusion is that, 'At present, it is not entirely clear what progression in music learning entails'. * James Garnett, Music Teacher magazine, May 2010 *
