Formative Assessment Strategies Used
- Entrance ticket is a form of pre-assessment to help you make decisions about the lesson before it begins.
- Self-reflection allows students to begin the metacognitive process and make connections to their own lives.
Update: Zaption is closing September 30, 2016. You may import your Zaption lessons into EDpuzzle.
Zaption is a Web app that works best in Chrome. It allows you to make videos into interactive “learning tours”. First you select a video from YouTube, Vimeo, or your own video library. You then add stopping points anywhere in the video to emphasize information or to have the viewer respond to questions. Question types you can choose from include; multiple choice, check box, and open response. Once you have identified the video you want, adding these points are very easy. All you have to do is drag the type of question you want from the toolbar and drop it into the sidebar located to the right of the video. Next you add the question or text slide you want and click play to continue. You may choose to identify correct responses for questions by clicking the plus sign next to each response. The analytic tools available through Zaption allow you to track multiple types of data; number of views, who has viewed, viewing time, question responses, question grades, and even whether a student skipped forward through a question.
