Assessing digital stories, and digital projects in general, can sometimes be challenging given the various forms projects can take and the difficulty of determining key learning outcomes for an activity (e.g., narrative building, communication, education, technical skills, etc.). In this final session in the Digital Storytelling series, we’ll discuss some best practices for assessing digital storytelling assignments, including: formative versus summative feedback, process versus product, and the benefits of using a rubric. Session participants will engage in a hands-on activity designing a rubric for their own purposes, based on some templates that we’ll share.

We’ll also discuss what happens once assignments have been assessed. Would you like to archive student projects? Share them publicly? Use them in future classes? We’ll conclude the series by sharing things to consider when choosing a digital platform and best practices for maintaining digital stories once they’ve been created. You do not need to attend either of the other workshops in this series in order to participate in this final one, but you are encouraged to attend all, if possible.
