Develop skills in analysis of functional harmony

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x

Elements and Performance Criteria



Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Clarify requirements for analysis

1.1 Discuss with appropriate people the purpose and scope of the harmonic analysis

1.2 Identify the musical styles, genres or pieces for harmonisation

1.3 Identify appropriate methods for analysing harmony in the context of the required task

1.4 Clarify factors that may impact on the analysis, and plan accordingly

2. Identify theoretical elements of music

2.1 Identify key signatures, accidentals and other harmonic indicators

2.2 Identify chords and chord progressions, both in notation and through aural recognition

2.3 Identify how the selected chords in the progression are used to create harmonic motion and resolution

2.4 Assess music pieces, recordings, compositions, written examples and/or performances to identify elements of functional harmony

2.5 Apply knowledge of a range of relevant functional harmonic and melodic elements to harmonising short musical extracts

3. Analyse the contribution of functional harmony to performance and compositional outcomes

3.1 Listen to musical examples, and identify and discuss with appropriate people the way in which harmony functions

3.2 Investigate musical examples for the way harmonic elements are combined, manipulated and interpreted for aesthetic, technical and/or expressive outcomes

3.3 Discuss aspects of own harmonisations in progress with appropriate people, and incorporate different angles or ideas into the work as required

4. Finalise analyses and harmonisations

4.1 Apply theory of functional harmony and related vocabulary to harmonic analyses and harmonisation

4.2 Present and discuss own analysis and harmonisation exercises with appropriate people

4.3 Seek feedback from appropriate people on own analyses and harmonisations, and note areas for future improvement
