I've developed study guide questions beginning with the fifth edition as part of my course syllabus. They are set up in two column format, printed two sides. For the fall semester there are 30 sheets and a similar number for the spring. They're homework for the students, and I glance at them during class and award 1 point per column to be added to the test grade for that unit (= usually two chapters). Generally, one set of questions is due at the beginning of class.  Here is the explanation that's in my syllabus:

The purpose of the study guide questions (=worksheets) is to provide a review of what the student has read and to help the student focus on important details of the textbook. (Thus, the kinds of questions posed could serve as a model for other courses where the student is responsible for comprehension of the text.) Finding the answers to each question is not the sole objective of these study questions nor should students look for ways to shortcut the system. Most important is paying attention to the writing style, sentence structures, development of the paragraph, punctuation, etc.

Before looking at the questions, I would suggest that the student read a section of the chapter, such as "Aspects of Eighteenth-Century Life" in chapter 13 (6th edition). The student could then check for comprehension by mentally answering the questions. Finally, answers should be written in the space provided in order to facilitate review before a written test.

The abbreviation TQ is a thought question for which the text does not supply the answer. [The answers for these questions won't necessarily be the same for every student.] Students should answer these thought questions and also develop others that may occur to them as they read. An end-of-the-chapter example of a thought question for chapter 13 (6th edition) might be "What are the major points in this chapter?" or "If I were given the names of 18th-century operas, could I match them to their composer or to their English translation or to their type (comic or serious) or to their school?" or "Could I synthesize several questions in order to answer an essay question about a particular topic?"

Faculty: I usually post the answers so that students can double check their answers. Because my course is online, it's done at the conclussion of each chapter. Here's what the answer sheet of chapter 3 of the seventh edition looks like.

2. DodecaFinder

DodecaFinder is a standalone application created using Revolution (by Runtime Revolution, Ltd.) to be used with 12-tone compositions. Once a series has been entered, the application will create the 12 X 12 grid and users can search for two- and three-string pitches and the program will highlight those boxes. Here is the Macintosh version and the PC version.
