Video assessment at Bury College

Experiment Title: Experimenting with Video Assessment to Demonstrate/Test Programs (Computing)


IntentTo vary the assessment methods used when developing a program and to clearly evidence that a programming project actually works.



  • Planet eStream to be used by the learner to record a demonstration of their working programming project
  • The Video is then submitted as a Canvas Assignment 
  • Feedback is provided using the comments option in Canvas SpeedGrader 



  • Reduces the reliance of print screens and report writing to evidence a working programming project
  • Demonstrates that the program actually works which is not always clear from print screens


Next Steps:

  • Investigate with BTEC External Verifiers as to whether this can be adapted to reduce the amount of written and print screen testing evidence
