Video assessment of student expressive skills

I am an ASL instructor at the University of Oregon in Eugene and am curious if anyone knows of any software that is out there which allows ASL students to video themselves signing, down load it to a computer and use rubrics to assess their own signing skills? I am looking for a way to have students create computer screens using software that will enable them to utilize before and after videos supported by rubrics that demonstrate their expressive signing improvement during the course. This would conceivably be used by me as my own assessment of their expressive skills.
Anyone know if there is anything out there that can do this?

Video Assessment and Rubrics

Hi, Peter, and welcome to the forum and the SLPI website.

As you probably know, there are many ways to get the students' video of themselves onto the computer. Most computers now can use an on-board or USB-attached video camera for that, and they have software that can play it once it gets there.

If you want more info on that, let me know what kind of computers you're talking about. I'll be happy to give you more info.

As for the rubric, that can be put on the computer screen alongside the video window. We at NTID wrote up a rubric last year to go with our recently published ASL at Work teaching materials that may be helpful. You can download the rubric here.

Rubric Comments

Rubric looks good.

A general suggestion - When posting forms (and other materials) I suggest that date form developed and names of developers be included. If a "group" effort can include name of group, though I always like to see names of developers included.

Thanks for that idea, Frank.

Thanks for that idea, Frank. Makes a lot of sense. Then we know who to thank!
