—— 1st presentation - Don Hinkelman, Joel Rian, Matthew Cotter - Video Assessment of Student Presentations with Moodle
After our session, I had a chance to sit in on a group presentation following ours which went over a highly useful module for the Moodle LMS system. The module is an add-on for Moodle and allows for teacher, self, and student video assessments. Here are some notes from their presentation:
The research question here: In self and peer assessment, will students grade their speeches the same as the teacher?
The Moodle Grading Rubric - How it all works.
- Students video a presentation.
- Video presentations are bulk uploaded to Moodle.
- Each video is then associate with a student in Moodle.
- Students are assigned peer and self assessment tasks for the videos.
Some points: The students can’t see the teacher’s assessment until they have done their own assessments.

The answer to the research question is “students generally self-assess lower than the teacher” for this action research project.

Following this presentation, I participated in a meeting with other members of my research team so the conference came to a close for me at this point. I wished I could have seen Karen Masatsugu's presentation which was later on in the day, but I needed to catch my flight back to Nagasaki from Haneda. Not to worry, though... I think we'll get her to re-present her topic in Nagasaki during our 2015 schedule!
Overall it was a busy conference with a lot to see and do and many presentations and workshops in which to participate. If only time would have moved a bit slower there, I'm certain I could have done more.
