Abstract and Keywords

This chapter introduces six themes related to the assessment of preservice music teachers. Assessment in music teacher education involves measurement of musical, pedagogical, and dispositional competence. Select criteria for institutional preservice teacher assessment are discussed, including comparisons among programs that prioritize musical performance (i.e., the musician/teacher) and those that prioritize teacher ability before musicianship. Comparisons among standardized knowledge-based and teacher performance assessments are included. Particular skills, abilities, and characteristics may be considered immeasurable. These constitute artistic qualities associated with teaching music. Additional chapter content includes the delineation of critical issues for in-service teacher evaluation and the importance of self-assessment/reflection in preservice teacher preparation.

Keywords: preservice music teacher, in-service music teacher, teacher evaluation, disposition, performance assessment
