Adding a Mid-Point Critique:6 Respondents
The rubric was again modified to improve the clarity of feedback based on student suggestions. In this cycle I offered a midpoint critique for anystudents interested in utilizing that time for guidance, before turning in their finalimages.
How will using a multimodal approach paired with in-class critiques at the midpoint, and a rubric modified for clarity, affect student-learning outcomes, as evaluated by the students?
Though a midpoint critique is offered this cycle, I do not expect students to utilize that time because normally they do not have enoughfinished artwork. The clarification of the rubric would also be helpful to the
standing of their assessment because the wording would be lessconfusing.
EVIDENCE USED TO EVALUATE THE ACTION:
The evidence used to evaluatethe actions at the end of this cycle was survey with the following questions:1.
Having received video feedback for the fourth time, how do you feel about it?2.
This assignment provided the option to present what you were working onto the group or to the teacher individually. No one chose to have a mid-point critique of their work. Do you think providing this option for mid-point feedback was helpful?3.
Why do you think no one chose to volunteer for feedback at the mid-point?4.
The rubric was modified to add space for written reflections from theteacher. Was it helpful to see
the teacher’s thoughts and feedback written at
the bottom of the rubric?5.
The rubric was modified to clarify some of the categories. Did theclarification of categories improve your understanding of the rubric?6.
Are there any other parts of the rubric that need more clarification?
Students responded that they continued to prefer the use of videofeedback, and the responses were again overwhelmingly positive. 50% of theresponses were top marks and the rest of the respondents were neutral or better. These findings continued to suggest that video feedback was a beneficial tool toevaluate student artwork.When asked if providing an opportunity for midpoint feedback was useful, 50% of the respondents thought this was beneficial, while the rest of the respondents wereagainst they idea. Since the question was designed to look for a majority opinion,split results create an inconclusive finding. Most respondents stated that they didnot chose to take advantage of this midpoint feedback option, and 66% respondents
