When I started using Edpuzzle years ago it was, I’ll shamefully admit, to make sure my students were complying with my directions to watch a video. But I soon discovered that the questions that you can embed in those videos are really good for formative assessment and providing feedback (or feedforward as I often call it).
There are 4 different ways that you can assess your students and/or give them feedback in Edpuzzle:
- Multiple-choice questions are auto-graded.
- You can mark questions correct (✔️) or incorrect (✖️).
- You can assign a percentage score to a response (i.e., 50% for half-correct).
- You can provide typed feedback.
My secret weapon, though, is this little efficiency hack. As you’ll see in the EduGIF below, marking questions as correct using the ✔️ can be kind of time-consuming. Instead, I skip over any correct answers and, once I’ve looked at them all, I click the “Mark Ungraded as Correct” button. And voila, Edpuzzle takes it from there!
It does take a handful of seconds, or even a few minutes, to go magically mark them as correct, but I can use that time to get a sip of coffee or eat a few peanut butter M&Ms.
