Paper examines video grading
John K. Estell, professor of computer engineering and computer science, and Walter W. Schilling Jr., BSEE ’97, of the Milwaukee School of Engineering, are co-authors of a paper published in the January-March 2014 issue of the Computers in Education Journal.
Titled “Enhancing Student Comprehension with Video Grading,” the paper lays out an alternative method for providing feedback to students that represents a natural extension to the “inverted classroom” where video lectures are viewed outside of the classroom so class time will be spent doing active learning. In lieu of written feedback, students are provided feedback for computer programming exercises through the use of a short video made via video screen capture and incorporating oral commentary by the instructor as the assignment is graded. The paper also included student perceptions of the technique, a comparison of faculty effort and assessments of the feedback mechanism used at both institutions.
