Using video as a tool for assessment

Part of series: Workshops & Seminars

More and more higher education institutions are incorporating video into their assessment procedures. This includes requiring students to carry out both group and individual video-based projects, evaluation of student presentations via video, rating and assessing student video showcases and recordings of experiments, procedures and practices that form part of the formal student assessment and evaluation process. During this interactive seminar we will be hearing from different practitioners about their experiences of video assessment and sharing best practices and ways in which it can be effectively supported.

Specific topics will include:

  • Video as an assessment tool – what do we know from the research literature
  • Measuring attainment when using video – rubrics, scales and criteria that are in use
  • Practical management of student production
  • Best practices in planning, supporting and assessing

This session will be led by John Murray, NUI Galway, Ireland and Matt Howcroft, University of Derby, UK with inputs from several experienced practitioners including Ian Turner, Professor Learning and Teaching, University of Derby, UK.
