Work on your major, minor and diatonic modes key signature recognition.

Limit the range of key signatures in the quiz by setting the number of sharps or flats allowed. Separate sharp and flat limits can range from 0 to 7, although you'll always have to have at least one accidental allowed.

Work on major and minor keys, the seven diatonic modes, or combine both into the quiz.

  • Ionian
  • Dorian
  • Phrygian
  • Lydian
  • Mixolydian
  • Aeolian
  • Locrian

This quiz has an engaging and unique interface to select the answers, emphasizing learning the key signatures away from the piano keyboard.

Four clef options (Treble, Alto, Tenor, and Bass)

Set the number of chances (1 to 3) to get the correct answer.

Number of questions can range from 1 to 100, and also set the quiz to grade only those questions answered. This allows you to test for a period of time, and finish at that point, regardless of the number answered. For example, see how many you can get right in 5 minutes.

There's a timer that records how much time was spent on the quiz. If you want, it can be turned off.

Choose how you want the quiz to look, ink on paper or chalk on a chalkboard.


Quickly see, filter by name, and edit this list of all saved scores.

You are able to delete selected scores, or all the scores at once.

Teachers may want to limit the access to the grades list, so it can be easily locked and unlocked within the app by using a password that is set in the iPad's Settings app. Just type the password as the student's name and the grades tab unlocks.

The recorded grades include the student's name, date and time the quiz was taken, all relevant quiz settings (clef, number of questions, etc.), and score (percentage and letter grade).

You can enter a name either in the module itself, or in the setup preferences. Just tap on the name and enter the new name.

Example of uses:

Use the timer to set an amount of time to work on a specific skill. Have a student work for 3 minutes and see how well they do. Set the quiz Preferences to grade only those questions answered, with the timer turned on. When they save their score it will show the timer information, number of questions answered, with the date and time the work was done.
