Using Video Analysis as Formative Assessment in the Physical Education Classroom

Project #264

Russell Munkler Cole Wilson


This study seeks to understand how the use of tablets to record and analyze videos of student performance can overcome some of these difficulties. IPads will be used to record student performance.  These videos can immediately be used to analyze the performance and give students visual cues as well as auditory cues to improve their next performance.  An ongoing cycle of performance and analysis will provide students with richer feedback and provide opportunities for students to provide peer feedback to each other.  The study will attempt to determine if this richer feedback will improve student performance.
