When your students are working on assignments that focus on rhythmic assessment, such as unpitched percussion assignments or rhythmic sight reading assignments, they should make sure to use Perc./Clap Mode. SmartMusic only assesses the student's rhythmic input when Perc./Clap Mode is in use. Students will need to activate Perc./Clap Mode for each assignment.
To activate select the Assessment tab and then click the Perc./Clap Mode button. The button is orange when Perc./Clap Mode is active.
For rhythmic assignments it may be useful remind your students to turn on Perc./Clap Mode in the instructions. See Assignment creation for how to include instructions.
