Formative assessment in the primary classroom
Interactive videos can be used as an effective tool for formative assessment. Check the level of understanding of your primary students as you go, offering them the chance to reflect on what they’re learning during a particular unit or topic.
How interactive video works
To help make video watching an active experience, you can take any existing video and add an interactive layer of questions, choosing from different available question types. After your students complete the questions, their results will help you to formatively assess them and plan your teaching.
How your students benefit
Interactive videos help engage students in active learning rather than passive watching. The interactive experience also helps them develop skills in critical reflection. The analytics you receive about student progress can help you target your teaching for a particular topic or subject to improve overall understanding.
Teaching strategies for primary aged students
ClickView provides an extensive collection of rich video content to help deepen your students’ understanding of a wide range of topics and concepts. Our Miniclips series is a great way to introduce video to consolidate a topic or provide stimulus for class discussion.
