Ideas for Assessment

To assess students using these programs you could create a rubric for them to adhere to.

Examples of things you could include on it are: Content, audience involvement, presentation skills, voice, eye contact etc.

Peer assessment and feedback could also be conducted after presentations.

Teachers could also assess presentations on their computer as the presentation is happening and print off the student’s feedback and marks for them to receive as soon as they have finished their presentation. This will help assist the teachers correction workload and would also benefit the students as they can receive immediate feedback to see what went well and what future improvement is needed.
