The Seventh International Symposium on Assessment in Music Education was hosted by the University of Florida. The symposium brought together 112 participants from 12 nations across six continents and 24 U.S. states to learn of each other’s work, establish collaborations and professional networks, and shape new directions for research in this important area of music education at the University of Florida in Gainesville from March 19–22, 2019.
The two keynote addresses and 31 papers published in this volume document music assessment practice and the measurement and evaluation of music learning across the world in local, state, and national contexts at all levels. The attendees also attended special work sessions to begin developing a set of assessment literacy standards for music teachers based on the International Principles for Assessment in Music Education (developed and introduced by the co-chairs at ISAME6 in 2017), and their discussions are summarized in this collection. As music educators across the world come to terms with increased expectations for accountability of learning in music, the scholars and practitioners who have contributed to this volume provide insight to guide their work.
