Tools for recording

What are some of the different ways to record evidence of student work?

Evidence from forms

You can make online digital forms quickly using Google Forms or Microsoft Forms.

These forms can be a simple multiple-choice quiz with built-in feedback, an exit ticket for quick student feedback on learning outcomes, or they can have extended responses and branching.

Evidence from discussion and collaboration

You can set up student groups in learning management systems like Google Classroom or Microsoft Teams to make collaboration easy and support your observation of the group work.

You could also take screenshots of student interactions using digital collaboration spaces such as Padlet or download a document from a completed Google Jamboard.

Evidence from video and live conferences

Students can record a screen capture of their work on their device using Microsoft PowerPoint screen recording.

They can also record responses to questions or explain their thinking using Flipgrid, Seesaw or Clips.

Evidence of progress

When students are working on a project or practical activity, have them create a learning log or digital portfolio that documents their progress.

There are many different tools suitable for creating a portfolio, depending on their age and the type of technology they have available to them.
