Abstract and Keywords
This chapter discusses the general landscape of assessment education in music programs and possible means of incorporating assessment learning in music teacher preparation programs. The chapter outlines a possible sequence of activities that would cover the more pertinent topics of assessment in an instructional sequence that would encompass all 4 years of a typical music education undergraduate program, as well as possible prototypical music education courses in which the topics could be incorporated with the ultimate aim of potentially leading to a more assessment-literate music education profession. The chapter describes steps that music teacher educators can take to help student teachers prepare for what their potential districts may require for teacher evaluation and teacher certification. It also emphasizes the importance of discussing contemporary school legal issues within the student teaching semester, even if students already are required to take a course that covers these issues.
