I've gamified how we do scales. We turn on the met and do a last man standing style round. Initially, no one can get out, but once we pass around 140 or so on the met, if you play too slow, too fast, or miss a note, you're out. Yeah, students definitely aren't honest with themselves and some immediately wiff the first note so they don't have to play, but the students that actually try have gotten wayyyyy better at scales and articulations. It might not be perfect, but they seem to enjoy it and they're getting better at their scales whether they realize it or not.|
