Assessing students with video

Using innovative assessment to develop student skills in research, presentation, employability and digital literacies.

They [students] have developed hugely in their self-confidence and entrepreneurial attitude.
Prof Carol Alexander (Professor of Finance) has introduced an innovative form of assessment to enable her students to showcase and develop a range of skills. The assessment required students to produce and present their own research on an area of blockchain finance and cryptocurrency markets in the form of a short video. Students were introduced to three video production apps (Videoscribe, Adobe Spark and Screencastify) during teaching. The work was then submitted and marked using the Speedgrader software within Canvas.
