We've broken up questions in meter, rhythm, scales and intervals to make it easier to create a test that fits the level of your students. Now you can also set grade weights for test sections. And you can schedule due dates and visibility options for tests connected to classes!
Teachers will see the new question types when creating a new test. This update will not affect tests created prior to December 2023.

Meter & Rhythm
The Meter & Rhythm test section breaks questions down further by note values, simple meter, compound meter, and complete or incomplete final measures with pickups:
Scale questions are grouped by number of accidentals, major scales and minor scales:
Intervals have two separate test sections – "Interval Construction and Identification" and "Interval Manipulation." Interval ID questions are categorized into major/minor diatonic, perfect, double accidentals, and non-diatonic intervals. Interval Manipulation questions include inversions, compound intervals, and enharmonic intervals:
New Test Settings
Additionally, test settings now allow for adjusting test section weight and section passing scores, in addition to the time limit* for each section:
*To remove time limits from test sections, enter an excessive amount of time in minutes (for example, "1000:00"). Do not enter a time limit of "00:00." This will allow 0 seconds for the test section, causing all answers to be marked wrong immediately upon starting the section.
Managing your assessments in uTheory is easier than ever! Tests connected to classes now have due date and visibility options, allowing you to schedule tests in advance:
Enabling a test due date will prevent students from taking and submitting a test after the deadline has passed. Any previous test results will remain visible to the student, unless the test is hidden.
Students will see test due dates next to their available tests in uTheory:
