Formative assessment in the Scottish classroom

Interactive videos can be used as a highly effective tool for formative assessment. Help your students of all levels to take learning further by reflecting on their understanding and key learnings.

How interactive video works

To transform video watching from a passive to an active experience, add an interactive layer of questions. You can use any existing video or create your own. Choose from different available question types, such as multiple choice and extended response. Once your students complete the questions, the detailed results will help you with formative assessment and targeted planning.

How your students benefit

Interactive videos help engage students in active learning. The interactive experience also helps them develop skills in higher order thinking and critical reflection. Built-in analytics give you detailed reports into student progress and can help you target your teaching on a particular topic in the curriculum for deeper understanding.
