Using Auralia and Musition in the classroom
Auralia and Musition both include simple yet sophisticated tools for classroom management, student assessment and record-keeping, and networking, making them the ideal software tools for your music classroom.
All multi-user copies of Auralia and Musition provide these features via included network server software – at no extra cost.
All of the copies of Auralia and Musition in your school can access a central database for the purposes of storing student profiles, assessment history, customized syllabuses, and so on. Simply set up one of your Windows or Mac computers as the host for the network database using the provided , and then all of your other computers – regardless of whether they run Auralia or Musition for Windows or Mac – can connect.
Connect from anywhere in your school
The computers your students use to run Auralia and Musition don’t even need to be in the same classroom as your network server. Install Auralia and Musition in your school library, music practice rooms, student common rooms, etc. as well as your classroom, and students can log on from anywhere to their own personalized profile.
Auralia and Musition allow you to set up profiles for all of the students in each of your classes in just a few minutes: simply create the Class, then assign students to that Class. You can set options for each Class, including minimum levels (so that students in advanced classes are not made to work through questions that are too easy for them), whether or not students can attempt questions multiple times, which Syllabuses should be included, and more.
Tests and electronic worksheets
Sometimes you will be happy to let students work through the materials in Auralia and Musition in a self-directed fashion, but sometimes you will want them to work through specific sets of questions. You can choose between dozens of preset Tests, or you can quickly and simply construct your own.
You can even create a test at school, export it to a file, then email that file to your students using Auralia 4 Student or Musition 4 Student at home. They can complete the test and email you a PDF showing their results!
Record-keeping and results
Each student’s progress is automatically tracked as they work through the Drills, Tests and Courses in Auralia and Musition, with the results logged on the network server (or on the student’s individual computer, if the network server has not been set up).
Teachers can easily view, print and export their students’ results, which are updated daily, allowing constant monitoring and tracking of student progress.
All of these features make Auralia and Musition the ultimate software tools for your music classroom.
