PHILOSOPHY OF VIDEO ASSESSMENT FROM MISTREAMNET (Michigan Education)
So you are asked to explore more in terms of building in real assessment of what students know. Is it that end of unit test or project? What if students are challenged with difficulties with writing or creating output? How can you get beyond this challenge, yet allow for an authentic outcome? These are questions we are faced with as we plan and execute our unit plans, and I'm not saying that Video Assessment is the only way to go. But perhaps it could be a strategy to add to our collection of assessment ideas.
What is Video Assessment? To sum it up, it is using video with students to explain what they have learned... going beyond worksheets and multiple choice test. The video forces students to think about, "Why are we doing this?" "What have I learned in class?" "What do I need to say to may audience to show them that they know?" "How will my peers provide feedback on what I know?"
Students will provide peer feedback to their peers on what is produced.
Don't worry about editing, worry about what the students are producing in terms of content... not polish.
Video: Laura Bell Video Assessment
* Laura Bell explains the concept really well. The framework for the video is explained. Use keypoints for video, not a polished script. Lots of cool examples.
How can we apply a similar concept in our school?
What devices would be needed?
What are the benefits to doing this?
What are the challenges? How can we move beyond these challenges, realistically? What can we do?
What could be the "baby steps" in trying this method or framework?
