This project intended to develop and trial consensus moderation strategies that address the alignment between assessment and learning in tertiary music programs, particularly alignment with the Australian national Creative and Performing Arts Threshold Learning Outcome statements (CAPA TLOs). The project focused on the development and description of a shared understanding of academic standards within the discipline of music at the undergraduate level using the ALTC Creative and Performing Arts Learning Outcome Statements (Holmes & Fountain, 2010) as a benchmark, and with particular attention to the basis for grading student work.
The project aimed to develop and trial assessment procedures that specifically align with the national TLOs and disseminate these for further evaluation and adoption across the sector. Deliverables include a resource repository and dissemination of the process and results through related forums. The Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University (QCGU) is the host for the project and oversaw the development and implementation of models and resources, with partner institutions the University of Newcastle and the University of Tasmania.
