Students marching this fall have already gathered at area schools to meet with their instructors and fellow participants. They have begun the journey of learning to perform marching shows for the upcoming competition season.

In the end, create a list of learning priorities of what your students should know, understand and be able to do by the post-test date. Remember your final results will be based-on moving individual students (not a class at a specific level) to another point as measured by the post-assessment tool you chose or developed.
