Students receive a band progress every marking period. Along with an assessment of instrumental skills, we also give them a grade based on:

  - Lesson Attendence (40 pts.)

  - Band Rehearsal Attendance (40 pts.)

  - Practice Minutes (Recorded on Practice Logs) (20 pts.)

  - Karate Band Test *See study guide below* (2nd and 4th marking periods) (20 pts.) 

*1 point is deducted each time a student is without their instrument.

*2 points are deducted each time a student has an unexcused absence from a lesson.
