Abstract: At the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Department of Music (IMU), new assessment guidelines were implemented during spring 2019, which had consequences for the assessment of bachelor concerts. The assessment guidelines offered two substantial new tools for external examiner use in summative assessment: They contained predefined assessment criteria and mark descriptions adapted to the expected learning outcome on the main instrument. In this chapter, I attempt to find out how the new tools function in practice and whether they clarify the task for the external examiners and increase transparency. A focus group interview with six examiners who used the guidelines at IMU is used to shed light on different aspects of the summative assessment. Sadler’s theory of qualitative assessment and the twin concepts of holistic and analytic assessment are used as a basis for my discussion.
