Evaluation Strategies for Videoconferencing

Here are some strategies for evaluating your videoconferences.

Evaluation with Students

Discuss the following questions after the videoconference.

  • What did we learn from the other school (content, process, and culture)?
  • What did we do well in the videoconference?
  • What can we improve next time?
  • What did we learn about videoconferencing from the partner school?

Content Evaluation

  • Evaluate the students’ understanding of the content in traditional ways (tests, quizzes, etc.)
  • Discuss with students how content knowledge was used in the videoconference and how their understanding was refined or extended.

Presentation Evaluation

  • Use rubrics from http://rubistar.4teachers.org/ or other sources to evaluate the students’ presentations.
  • Discuss what worked well with students in presenting via videoconferencing and what could be improved.

Teacher Reflection

  • Consider the following questions.
  • How did the videoconference enhance or extend the students’ understanding of the topic?
  • Was the videoconference technology transparent or did it interfere with the learning?
  • What could make the interaction more effective?
