Abstract

The presentation will illustrate three examples of the use of presentation and web conferencing software to encourage student self assessment. This anonymous assessment data can be used by students to evaluate their understanding of the presented material, or can provide vital information to instructors allowing them to modify presentation delivery or review incompletely understood concepts. The first example demonstrates the use of presentation software to create anonymous self assessment questionnaires that are inserted every 10 to 15 slides throughout a distributed didactic lecture. The second example illustrates the use of student polling by an instructor to immediately assess student understanding of the previously presented material. The third example discusses the use of a branching case scenario to encourage the use of problem solving skills.
