Abstract

Student performance of a given work being studied in a music history survey course will better engage students, providing a unique perspective which will lead to more thorough comprehension and retention of the material. This idea will be examined using the following questions: 1. Do students who perform materials being studied in class have higher achievement on assessments addressing objective information (knowledge/comprehension/application) about the era or work? 2. Are students who perform materials being studied in class better able to respond to questions requiring the use of higher order thinking skills (analysis/synthesis/evaluation)? 3. Do students who perform the materials being studied exhibit a greater level of engagement in the class than those who do not?
