Practica Musica version 6 to 7 Activity Equivalents

Remarks:

• All activities are now customizable, so the version 6 activities marked "custom" are no longer needed. If a student has customized an activity its score in the progress report identifies it as customized. If it was customized by an instructor and supplied via the From Instructor column through webstudents, it is marked "instructor."

• Some duplicative activities have been dropped.

• While most version 6 activities have close equivalents in version 7, those in the Rhythm Reading section are reorganized and renamed as Rhythm Reading I, II, II, IV. These are now progressive activities that begin with simpler material and get more difficult as the student gains skill. Some of these include chord accommpaniment, especialy where helpful in showing compound meter. Rhythm Reading Practice includes chord accompaniment for fun and the difficulty level can be set by student.

• Activities using precomposed examples for melodic or rhythm dictation now have greatly expanded example lists drawn from Ladukhin.

• A number of activities, such as Hearing Triads, also include a practice levels in which the student can choose the materials witihout customizing the activity. Practice levels are not scored for points.

• Student progress reports now include more detail if there are any sublevels with different material, and scoring has been coordinated so that the usual practice is a point for a correct response, a point off for an error. What had been "goals" are now "milestones," and students can earn any number of milestones: an activity is never finished. We expect most instructors will ask the students to earn at least one milestone in an assigned activity, and a milestone earned will show up as the traditional gold star in the progress report. Completed sublevels and examples will show a checkmark.
