Presentation Transcript

  1. Videotaping and the Assessment Nicole Merino PACT Stanford University November 10, 2010 Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning, and Equity, 2010

  2. Focus of Session • What strategies can programs use to facilitate the videotaping, before, during, and after the assessment?

  3. Before the Teaching Event • Logistical considerations • Do you have permission? • Example permission slips. • Do you have enough equipment? • Candidates will need to check out equipment. • Be aware of timing among various groups/cohorts • Consider deadline for camera return – have a system in place. • Inexpensive video cameras are available • Many students have their own or borrow or purchase them • Many school sites have cameras

  4. Before the assessment… • Logistical considerations • We need to buy equipment…what and how much? • Small inexpensive cameras • Microphones • Tripods

  5. Before the assessment… • Prior experience with videotaping. • Helps work out many logistical/anxiety issues • Video Reflection #1: analyzing videos of other teachers • No stakes • Video Reflection #2: done independently & individually • Low stakes • Video Reflection #3: video elicitation with supervisor • Slightly higher stakes • Video Reflection #4: TPAC • High stakes

  6. What is Video Elicitation? • Candidate videotapes a lesson without supervisor present • Candidate chooses 15-min. segment to view with supervisor • Candidate and supervisor meet to view video together • Candidate plays tape, stopping whenever he wants to comment • Supervisor’s job is to elicit, not to advise • “And why do you think that happened?” • “And your reason for that was…?” • “So you moved those students apart and…?” Can greatly improve reflection on the part of the student

  7. For more information on VER… • Issues in Teacher Education, Fall 2009 issue. • “Transforming Supervision: Using Video Elicitation to Support Preservice Teacher-Directed Reflective Conversations”

  8. Dress Rehearse • Suggestion: Place video camera in classroom in advance of teaching event • Helps “acclimate” students • Minimizes clowning for camera • Provide “Tips for Success” sheet to candidates before first low-stakes videotaping • Before the assessment, introduce Task 2 rubrics • Helpful to know criteria in advance • Practice practice practice • Helps to make it feel more natural • Circulating, questioning, calling on students, interacting, promoting active engagement

  9. During the assessment… Advice for Students: • Revisit “Tips for Success” and rubrics • Videotape as much as possible during • Double check the sound! Double check the picture! • If using camera with limited recording time, be sure to download onto computer daily. Other Things I Need to Do: • Clarify to CTs and site support what their role is (and isn’t) during teaching event

  10. After the assessment… What I Tell My Students: • Choosing the Clips • Do not search for “perfect” teaching • Must be unedited! • Don’t watch every minute of every taped lesson segment • Do keep notes of parts of lesson(s) that might be worth choosing– best done daily during teaching • Refer to Handbook • Criteria and steps for completion are laid out in detail • Refer to Rubrics • Choose clips according to the criteria by which you’ll be judged

  11. After the assessment… Preparation of video clip(s): • Software • Technical support • Storage space

  12. Video and Other Task Commentaries • The Write-up • Details, details! • Spell it out even if it seems redundant or obvious in clips • Transcripts are helpful. • Words and pictures combined are the best assurance for highest score • Refer to video in other tasks as appropriate • Assessment • Reflection • Academic Language
