Film as a tool for assessment


In this, our final section of the course we’d like to talk about filmmaking as a tool for assessment. We have talked about film planning and scriptwriting as fantastic tools for literacy and in this section we’d like to examine how filmmaking can be an exciting tool for assessment.

In the video above we’ll hear from our partner training organisation in Northern Ireland, Nerve Centre, who work extensively with teachers to embed the use of filmmaking processes within the assessment of pupils’ understanding and knowledge of curricular topics.
