Today’s Tip of the Week is for users of Quaver’s K-5 Curriculum! 

Did you know you can now use your Year-End Assessment for each grade level as a Pre-Assessment, as well?

You may already know that each grade of the QK-5 Curriculum includes a comprehensive Year-End Assessment in Lesson 35. These 26-question Assessments are intended to help you measure how well students understand the concepts covered in music class each year.

To help you create a baseline for student understanding as they enter the classroom, we’ve now added the same quiz as a Pre-Assessment to Lesson 1 of each Curriculum Grade. 

This idea came to us from several Quaver teachers who needed a pre-assessment to conform to new state standards. We thought it was a great application and have now made it easier for everyone to use if they choose!


To access a Pre-Assessment:

  • Log in to your QuaverMusic.com account.
  • Click the Teacher Tab or School Bus Stop Sign
  • Click on Curriculum at the top of the Quaver Flagpole
  • Choose any Grade Level you have an active license to access
  • Click Lesson 1 
  • Select the Pre-Assessment and click Launch, or navigate to the end of the lesson


Give it a try this week and let us know what you think!
