Re: chair test
Chair tests have the exact opposite effect on all but the top 5% of my students. To them, chair tests are a reason to shut down and cry because they can't be bothered to practice and then get embarrassed when they don't want to play a Concert F in front of the group.
Why wouldn't you?
What incentive would your 7th chair clarinet player have to get better if they know they're stuck at 7th chair all year?
Do you do a chair test in HS band?
