Looking back at your practice diary and your assessed performance how do you judge your personal accomplishment? Did you practice as much as you were able? Did you develop at a consistent rate? Do your practice diaries show a clear reflection of this?

Looking back at my practice diary, I practiced much more towards the middle and the end of the year because I had a change of heart towards music. I think I did okay in music this year. I think I practiced as much as I would have liked but I think I could have practiced even more.

Looking at your theory work and final test how did you do?

Looking at my theory test, I was very pleased with myself because it is the highest theory mark I have gotten this year and I did a lot studying for it.

My goal for this year because I am not taking music next year is to at least get a 5.

Criterion D Reflection

by Samuel James on June 4, 2014

I would like to think that I deserve a 5 because of the work I have put in into class but really, I think I deserve to have a 4. This is because I usually did my homework but not all the time and my practice is only proficient. I think my moodle work has also only been proficient because some of my theory work has been a day or a couple of hours late. I don’t think this is good and if I was taking music next year I would definitely try my best to hand in all the moodle stuff on time.
