Comment


Material:

Interactive Music Skill Checks

Rating: 4 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: William Wieland (Faculty), Apr 29, 2002
Comment: I directed my students to use Interactive Applet Skill Tests to supplement my
freshman music theory online materials and keyboard activities. Most reacted
favorably. Comments included "this helps a lot" and "good for practice". Of
course, some found the material too hard while others thought it too easy.

Technical Remarks:

Several students were not comfortable with the interface. I received comments
such as "online work is tough and tedious" and "even if you know the right
answer, the computer will sometimes count it wrong if it is not written in a
specific way".
