Effective choral performance develops in students both aesthetic awareness and learning behaviours, which can be evaluated qualitatively and quantitatively. It is important that music educators and administrators have a clear understanding of the topics included in each evaluative category, and that they develop detailed methods for the assessment of student learning and program effectiveness. -- In light of the objectives for choral performance outlined in the Department of Education Course Description (1983), this report discusses the historical role of choral performance in Newfoundland high schools, and evaluative techniques used by teachers in June 1983. It points but the discrepancies between teacher practices in evaluation and course requirements. -- New evaluative guidelines presented in this report are designed to narrow the gap between prescription and practice, and an examination format is proposed for both schools and the Department of Education. The guidelines, based on each objective listed in the Course Description, are for the assessment of student performance, aural training, and knowledge and understanding of historical eras, music terms, and choral styles.
