Abstract and Keywords

This chapter introduces the practice of music education assessment since the foundation of the Republic in 1923, and describes the effects of the social and political environment on assessment policymaking process. After the Republican Era, greater importance has been given to the rise and development of modern education. In particular, important changes have been made in music education since the establishment of the Music Teacher Training School in Ankara in 1924. The assessment segment of music education was not considered as a great concern for policymakers until the 1990s, when growing globalism that caused closer relationships among societies also affected Turkey’s educational policies. Therefore, as in the West, assessment in music education has recently become a growing area of interest among scholars in Turkey.

Keywords: music education, Turkey, music assessment, social change, policy, politics and music, assessment
