Rhythm Assessment Guide

Welcome to the Unison.School rhythm assessment game!

Like the instrument studio, the rhythm assessment is available for free from any device, anywhere.

Unlike the instruments, this assessment also allows students to take a scored test, and teachers to view the scores of their students!

Playing Rhythms

Click on the word Rhythm in the top menu. (Pull down menu from the right for mobile).

You will see a simple 4-beat rhythm pattern written in 4/4 time. Below this are two buttons: Check and Restart, with a drum in the mIddle.

When you tap or click the drum on the screen, or tap the space bar on your keyboard, you should hear a drum sound. Try to tap exactly the pattern written on the screen, then click "Check". If you know you have made a mistake, press "Restart" instead.

You will get a popup message that tells you if you played the rhythm correctly. Use the "Next" or "Retry" buttons to continue.


Once you have completed a rhythm, you will see a score being kept at the top of the page. This is broken up into different categories for different mistakes, and the large numbers are your total. You can reset the score at any time.
