Video-Based Test Questions: A Novel Means of Evaluation
Hertenstein, Matthew J.; Wayand, Joseph F.
Journal of Instructional Psychology, v35 n2 p188-191 Jun 2008
Many psychology instructors present videotaped examples of behavior at least occasionally during their courses. However, few include video clips during examinations. We provide examples of video-based questions, offer guidelines for their use, and discuss their benefits and drawbacks. In addition, we provide empirical evidence to support the use of video-based test questions. The data indicate that students preferred video-based questions to multiple-choice questions on a variety of outcome variables, and data suggest that student learning may be enhanced. The use of video-based test questions that is discussed in this paper can be applied to a variety of educational disciplines and levels. (Contains 1 table.)
