What is my personal homepage?

When you log in to the Clements Theory site you will find that the homepage is personalised just for you. Here you can view everything relating to your Grade 5 Theory studies. You will find your Progress Score chart and a history of all practice question tests you have taken on the site. You can even enter your exam date to add a countdown clock to your page.

What is my Progress Score?

Your Progress Score gives an indication of how much progress you have made in music theory. Every time you take a practice question test your answers are recorded and points awarded. Every 100 points of progress corresponds approximately to the level required for an equivalent Associated Board or Trinity College exam, for example 500 corresponds to Grade 5 Theory. However, you'll need to make sure that you are doing well in all topics, not just one!

How is my Progress Score calculated?

Every time you take a practice question test your answers are scored. Questions range in difficulty from 1 to 5 based on the curriculum of the grade (1 to 5) in which the subject matter of the question first appears. Each correct answer will score 1 point per grade of difficulty. For example:

1 x Grade 1 correct answer = 1 point
1 x Grade 3 correct answer = 3 points
1 x Grade 5 correct answer = 5 points

However, you will also lose 1 point per grade of difficulty for every incorrect answer. For example, if you answered 10 Grade 4 questions correctly but answered 5 Grade 5 questions incorrectly you total progress score would be:

10 x Grade 4 correct answers = 40 points
minus 5 x Grade 5 incorrect answers = 25 points
Total = 15 progress points

And finally, your Progress Score will not drop below zero!

What is my Progress Score chart?

Your Progress Score is calculated every time you complete a practice question test. Your chart displays the score you receive for each of the six key curriculum areas as well as combining them to show an overall Progress Score.

How do I tell what topics are shown in my Progress Score chart?

The Progress Score chart shows your scores across all six curriculum topics. These are listed across the bottom of your chart. When you click on a topic followed by the "Update" button, the graph will update to show your progress in that specific area.

Why do you save my Practice Question tests?

We save your practice question tests for two reasons. Firstly, so that we can calculate your Progress Score and secondly, so that you can effectively monitor it. Each date on your Progress Score chart is a day on which you took one or more practice question tests. If you see an improvement, or indeed a decline, on a certain day you can take a look at the saved tests and see where you gained or lost points. A history of your test performance is an essential reference point.
