Why use video grading?

Benefits of using video grading
Benefits of using video grading

  • Saves time

  • Gives in-person consultation as a reusable learning object

  • Provides student with individualized feedback

  • For online only courses, gives students a connection to the instructor

  • Allows instructor to reflect on quality of feedback


  • Video feedback in writing assessments should be seen as part of an effective feedback loop for students, especially when the instructor is known only at a distance.

  • Student persistence relies on the principle that assigned work is understood and that feedback is constructively directing the student towards a successful outcome.

  • Feedback loops involving interactive and visually constructive assessment support student persistence in an online or blended learning environment (“Instructional Interaction,” 2004).

Feedback loops in higher ed
Feedback Loops in Higher Ed

  • Goetz (2011) describes the feedback loop in education as consisting of,

    “Provid[ing] people with information about their actions in real time (or something close to it), then giv[ing] them an opportunity to change those actions, pushing them toward better behaviors. Action, information, reaction” (p. 1).

  • Providing students with video feedback on writing assignments in an asynchronous class is a positive solution for this real time action.


  • I just wanted to take a moment and let you know that I appreciate the fact that you made a video response to my paper. It has really helped me grow as a writer.

  • I have never learned so much in an online class. It is so helpful that you provide videos in grading and teaching. I think this makes learning so much easier. I can't believe how many teacher[sic] never tell you what to do to correct your mistakes. Without correction, I feel we leave with the same knowledge we came with.
