Combing Formative Assessment and Music with Suno

 Music is a universal language we can combine with formative assessment to engage students and determine their knowledge. Artificial intelligence is making it possible for students to demonstrate their understanding through creative ways like generating songs.

Suno is a tool that allows you to provide a prompt and generate a song for yourself. You can also write your own original lyrics, add the type of music you want, watch it, and create a song. The tool has a free version and a paid version. The free version allows you to generate up to 10 songs daily, which is a good deal.

According to Suno's terms of use, you must be at least 13 years old to use the tool. If you have students under 13, you could collaborate as a class to generate a song about what was learned that day. Then, give students the opportunity to practice their critical thinking skills to see if the information was correct or incorrect or what lyrics should be changed.

Music has the power to engage students on a whole different level. This tool could be a great resource to help students connect with learning and exercise their creative side. Want to see how it works? Check out my video below.
