Creative Assessment

Assessment is a vital part of the teaching and learning process. Unfortunately, it can be seen as a burden and one of the least enjoyable features of being an educator, yet when done well, it can be a very creative a rewarding experience for both teachers and learners.

This video blog post looks at a creative approach to diagnostic assessment or pre-assessment with the help of some Adobe tools. Diagnostic assessment is often overlooked in busy classrooms but when done well, it can help with engagement, curriculum planning as well as provide agency (a student voice) and lead to great levels of student engagement.

More information about using Adobe apps in education can be found within the Adobe Education Exchange which currently involved over 850,000 educators globally.

Some great Australian based tutorials for Premiere Rush, Spark Video and other Adobe apps are available via Dr Tim Kitchen’s EduTips series.
