Effective formative or summative assessment can be in a challenge for many teachers. It may be especially challenging when teaching digital natives (e.g., millennials, net generation). For rich feedback and meaningful assessment to occur, information must be presented in an engaging manner to serve both formative and summative pedagogical needs of the students. The use of video and audio assessment, coupled with traditional written feedback, works well in the traditional classroom environment and for students learning from a distance. As a matter of fact, it’s what the students prefer. This session will include how to use auditory/visual tools such as Camtasia/Captivate, Adobe Connect, Jing, etc. to create such assessment. Through the use of these tools, instructors can provide right, meaningful feedback to students and students understand more thoroughly what they are doing well or wrong. Students view this assessment process as individual attention (more like coming to the instructor’s office and discussing an assignment) and relationship building.
