e-Assessment Scotland 2012: Changing the Way We Provide Feedback

Russell Stannard was first up after lunch to talk about his use of screen capture software to provide feedback. He talked us through his learning journey sharing resources and experiences. He now uses Jing to capture ‘live’ feedback which is hosted online and shared via URL.

He referred to Richard Mayer’s research into multimedia learning which I’m keen to follow up.

From the back channel:

Voice is important for conveying feeling associated with feedback

Audio feedback automatically creates richer feedback – you don’t just say “good” – you naturally expand and explain

Audio feedback: students received more feedback (150wpm) and more PERSONAL feedbac

Students liked both oral & visual elements, thought they were getting more detail, were motivated, clearer, more personal

When @russell1955 initially when started with video feedback gave feedback on surface errors but now elaborates much more

‘Students asked to estimate their mark after feedback – none overestimated their marks’

Well impressed by the fact that Russell shows his early practice and how it has developed – well done sir!
