Transcript: In 2007, MENC/NAfME recognized that the National Standards for Music Education were needing revision. After extensive reasearch, the following recommendations were made: 1)The 1994 National Standards for Music Education should be enhanced by the creation and implementation of Achievement Standards for each grade level up to grade 8 and for each elective course in secondary schools. 2)The 9 content standards developed in 1994 are still valid. The recommendation was that no further changes should be implemented. Ideally, the Achievement Standards should connect to the Content Standards. Additionally, the task force offered nine suggestions that MENC might consider to promote future growth: 1 The Opportunity-To-Learn Standards for Music Instruction should be reviewed and updated. 2 One of the most urgent needs is for professional development for P-12 music educators. 3 MENC’s Strategies for Teaching publications have made an invaluable contribution in helping teachers teach to the Standards. But more help is needed, especially with those strategies, subject matter, and school populations where teachers face the greatest difficulties. 4 There is evidence of widespread interest among music educators in sharing assessment strategies. 5 Because of the heavy hand of tradition, success in implementing the Standards may ultimately depend upon the extent to which changes can be brought about in the teacher education curricula of our colleges and universities. 6 MENC might consider developing a policy statement concerning the selection of music repertoire and teaching materials for instructional use. 7 Within MENC we have three Societies and several SRIGs that serve as means of communication among members who share specialized interests, but we have no similar groups for persons who are interested in issues related to teaching composition, improvisation, interdisciplinary relationships, or understanding music in relation to history and culture. 8 Future developments at the national level with respect to standards should be monitored continuously so that music education can remain in a leadership role. 9 There remains another category of needed actions that are more difficult to define precisely. They arise from the issues raised at the Centennial Congress in Orlando in June. Since music education is seen as valuable by almost everyone, and since music is an integral part of the life of almost everyone, why is it that we have not yet been successful in making music a part of the core curriculum of every student in every school? While success in music is often linked to success in other areas (math achievements, higher SAT scores, etc.) it is critical that we spend just as much time and resources advocating for music programs for the sake of music. We cannot be just a good idea to help other subjects; we can and should stand on our own merits. The research is there, going all the way back to Plato, when he said that music: “is a more potent instrument than any other for education (MMIC).” Lessons Marching Band Modern notation began around 1450. 1838: Lowell Mason worked to include music as a curricular subject. 1923: The first school bands began in Minneapolis Jr High Schools. Joliet Township Band rises to prominence in the late 1920's. Methods The survey contained 25 questions that were centered on the demographics and components of the programs, as well as the frequency of said components (How often do you require students to turn in a written composition, for example). The survey also provided an opportunity for participants to supply feedback about the biggest challenge they face as well as provide an example of their most rewarding experience of the last 12 months.

Transcript: Instrumentation Instrumentation for branch coverage Master Project Defense The results were the total instructions at binary level that observed from first execution is different to other execution. The statement coverage has increased up to 66% at the same rate in the second execution We have done several experiments in simple programs: We compare execution information in terms of number of observed statement lines at the source code level and number of observed instructions at binary level. Experiments Set up : Our goal of this project Dominator analysis to identify Basic blocks that dominate others conclusion Future Work Instrumentation for statement coverage Results: Binary level Analysis of Hardware-based Monitoring We run three sets of experiments in order to analyze: لBut we believe that there should be more investigations of consistency based on program structure. Improvement the effectiveness of Hardware-based Monitoring using Dominator Analysis The comparison between the binary and the source-level statements observations at different rate of sampling Hardware event sampling through hardware counters Why use hardware monitoring? Identify the differentiation between hot and non-executed paths From Analysis of Hardware-based Monitoring, we can see which: Instructions are the most frequently observed Instructions are observed few times Instructions are not observed Goal: Improve the effectiveness of Hardware-based Monitoring using Dominator Analysis. Observed Statement Lines Using HW Monitoring In this part of the project, we try to analyze consistency for multiple executions for the same program at the same rate of sampling Can remove the need of using instrumentation We will fluctuate the rate of sampling based on our estimations of hot and cool paths. We hope to improve the effectiveness of monitoring while maintaining high efficiency consistent . The program under test is analyzed to locate code points Each point is marked by probes Probes: which are in general, a jump or call to payload code that analyzes the monitored information. Hardware-based monitoring: We calculate the coverage by two ways: Source level coverage -----> Source statement lines Binary level coverage ------> Instructions Based on Dominator Analysis, the actual coverage of Test_program_1 was improved up to 64% and up to 42% for Test_program_2 compared to actual coverage observed using only hardware monitoring. what instructions are being observed. We use dominator analyses to determine guaranteed execution relationships of blocks in a CFG. We run program Test_program_1 for five times Introduction: A traditional way to evaluate and monitor tests is through the insertion and execution of instrumentation. In this part, the goal is to study the types of instructions that are observed including the frequency of these observations Future Work: Challenges Use Pin tool Static analysis Use Libpfm tool Hardware Monitoring Use LLVM tool CFG and Dominator analysis Conclusion: Improving and Evaluating the Effectiveness of Hardware Monitoring for Test Coverage Analysis Study the consistency between observed executions when the same rate of sampling is used more than one time for the same program Does not cause code growth and requires no recompilation Identify Basic Blacks from instructions using CFG The basic blocks of the CFG can be used to extrapolate information based on observed behavior Instrumentation gives accurate view of execution In oder to improve the effectiveness of Hardware-based Monitoring Test_program_1.c by Omar J Alzahrani 8 July 2013 Instrumentation Results: It is a critical and an expensive element of the software development life cycle Hardware-based monitoring: We first created a tool in Pin to analyze the image of the program under test. For each statement: the address, the line in the source code, and the source file name. These records are used to link the source level information with the binary instructions that the libpfm tool will observe. The Main Contributions What is instrumentation? If any statement has been executed within block then the entire block is executed However !!! Consistenscy: If we sample more than one time for same program at the same rate, the aggregating of samples should be the same or at least close enough In consistency part, we compare execution information in terms of number of observed statement lines at the source code level and number of observed instructions at binary level. also we measure the consistency between observations Addressing the challenges 2- Observe Program Execution Using Hardware-based Monitoring Compare all addresses in our source code with the addresses that were observed using hardware mechanisms alone We run simple programs Test_program_1.c, and Test_program2.c using PERIOD=50000, 100000, 500000 with COUNTER=PERF-COUNT-HW-INSTRUCTIONS. Recently exploited in SE Results: Source-level statements Improvement the effectiveness of Hardware-based Monitoring using
