I do chair tests AND weekly playing tests. I have 2 band ipads that the kids record on or they send their test in on google classroom. Most of my sections are used to it by now. When I pass out new music to read I pass out all parts. If it is something I plan on playing for a concert or contest then everyone gets the first part. I will then hold a test over the first part and rank everyone accordingly. I also have implemented a "challenge" system. If you don't like where you ended up you can "challenge" for the chair you want.
1) etude/desired part
2) scale -student picks
3) sight reading- obviously I pick
Seems to work for me.
Do you do a chair test in HS band?
