Fall 2018 Kick-Off Week
Before you come to campus, we need you to take some online exams in music fundamentals so we know where to place you for your musicianship classes. These online tests are available from July 20th to August 20th.
To complete your online tests, you must download the software for the program Musition (cloud version) by Rising Software. Directions to do this have been sent to your RU e-mail account.
After downloading the software, launch the program.
The program will ask for a User Name and for a password. Your username is the first part of your Roosevelt University email address before "@mail.roosevelt.edu". For example, if your Roosevelt email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, then your user name is jsmith05. This is also referred to us your NetID.
Your temporary password is CCPAMUSIC. The program will ask you to create a new password. (You may also change your voice type if you want, but it is not required.)
Once you've logged in, select the "Home" tab at the top left of the screen.
On the right side of the screen under Activities & Messages>Tasks>Custom Courses you will see a tab for Roosevelt University – Fundamental Diagnostics. When you select this tab, the five tests you need to take will appear at the bottom of the screen. The five tests are:
1-Note Recognition Test
2-Major Scales/Key Signatures test
3-Minor Scales/Key Signatures test
When you are ready to take the test (each test can only be taken once), select the test at the bottom of the screen and chose "Start" at the top of the screen to begin the test.
Please complete all of these tests by August 20th.
Important: These exams will not change your admission to CCPA. We simply want to put you in a class that fits your current knowledge of musicianship. Some students find these exams very easy, others very hard. Those finding them easy will be allowed to take further exams to place into a higher level of musicianship when they come to campus. Those who struggle with some or all of this material will be placed in the appropriate class.
In addition to these placement tests, we request that you also complete a questionnaire detailing some of your piano experience. Please note that this is also required, and should be completed in the same timeline specified above. Follow this link to complete the questionnaire.
Please contact Dr. William Hussey (email@example.com) or Jeremy Cairns (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions or have any problems.
