SmartMusic

How do you use SmartMusic with your choir?  I am trying to find a way to use it to assess my students individually.  Does anybody have any ideas or tips?
 
Thanks

We have two practice room subscriptions at our school and create student accounts for all our singers. You can use sight singing assignments already included in SmartMusic, or use Finale to create customized assingments. If there is a part in the music that the chorus is struggling with, I'll put it in SmartMusic and have the kids assessed on it. Every chorus rehearsal I put the names of singers who are supposed to do their Smart Music Assignments, and the students rotate through the practice rooms. During  a 55 minute period I can usually get 10 - 12 singers through the two practice rooms.

We use SmartMusic in our middle school pull-out lessons. About twice a quarter, the students are pulled out from one of their classes for about 20 minutes. We assess them on short sight-reading exercises we create in Finale.
