Abstract and Keywords

Music education in Taiwan is implemented in three ways: through professional music education offered at schools, general music education offered at schools, and music education offered to the public. This chapter excludes assessment issues concerning music education offered to the public and rather, addresses (1) the assessments in joint admissions of the professional music education and (2) the assessment in general music education offered at schools. To be more specific, topics cover the following perspectives: artistic talent music programs, admissions to the artistic talent music programs in elementary and junior high schools, joint admissions to the artistic talent music program in senior high schools, college joint admissions (first year), music assessment related regulations for compulsory education, and literature related to music assessment in general music instruction, followed by discussion and implications. In order to bridge the gap between assessment practices and assessment research, more efforts need to be taken in building assessment knowledge bases, in formulating cross-discipline cooperation, and in addressing the contextual integration of curriculum, instruction, and assessment.

Keywords: alternative music assessment approach, artistic talent music program, assessment policy, assessment practice, general music education, joint admission, music assessment, music curriculum standard, music curriculum guideline, professional music education
