- Rhythmic assessment now visible through immediate feedback. Rhythmic assessment has always been included in SmartMusic's assessment grade, but now students receive immediate visual feedback on early and late notes. When recording in SmartMusic yellow noteheads will appear to indicate correct pitches that are played early or late. The horizontal placement of the notehead indicates whether the note was played early or late. For more information see Understanding visual assessment. Once you have tried out the new feature let us know what you think Here.
- Accessibility for color blind Students and Educators. We know that there are color blind SmartMusic users who are not well served by the red/green visual assessment. In order to improve the accessibility and overall experience for color blind users, we have implemented a Color Blind Mode in the Practice application and the Gradebook. See Understanding Visual Assessment for more information.
