Here is the assessment of my digital story, “Emma Gets Lost in Berlin,” as if it were an assignment completed by a student. It is is not exactly what an assessment would like, but it’s pretty close. One of my requirements is that students use sources from class. My video was not based on any particular class, so the requirement could not be applied to my video. In addition, my rubric is set up for a group project. I made my video by myself.
I got a pretty awesome grade though (considering I made the grading system for it).
Overall Grade: 4.00 (A)
Project Planning: 4.00
The students submitted their project proposal. The students have a detailed, cohesive, and factual storyboard and script. There is written evidence that they considered what transitions and effects they would use in their production, but the students are not specific.
My storyboard and script were submitted on time and included what transitions and effects I intended to use. However, I could have been more specific with my exact transitions for extra credit. (N/A for proposal because I would’ve been submitting a proposal to myself.)
Understanding of Content: N/A
My example video was not based off of a particular class. It was a generic informational short story that can be used as an example in any class. As a result, it does not relate to any class material and cannot be judged in this category.
Sense of Audience: 4.00
The students consider the knowledge base and interests of their target audience. The students successfully tailor their video to their audience so that their audience can understand and enjoy the video.
The audience was assumed to be a group of younger students with no prior knowledge of Berlin or the Bundestag. I did not use any unfamiliar terminology without explaining it. All foreign (German, in this case) words were explained.
The students’ production is factual and has credible sources. If firsthand information, the student accurately recounts their experience and includes correct information.
My sources came from credible informational sites and a journal.
The students accurately cite all sources (including both sources discussed in class and sources found outside of class).
I cited my textual sources in APA format at the end of the video. I gave credit to all musicians and photographers whose works I used.
