After correcting the tests, (we still use paper and pencil for this...hoping to change soon) I recorded a video message to each student using my iPad2 camera. At the beginning, I placed the camera directly on the students name as it was written on the paper. This allowed me to see who the video clip belonged to when I went back to review each video.
To distribute the video to students, I sent it in an email to their school Google Email. The only negative to this is that the video must be less than 1:00 in length. If it is not, the video asks for you to clip it prior to emailing. I did and clipped the last 10-12 seconds of the video.
After I sent all the emailed videos to each individual student, I sent a mass text as an email to the students telling them, "Algebra Students: Check Email For Chapter 3 Test Comments"
The entire process of video tapping and sending took less than 30 minutes.
➔21st century way of communicating
➔Students who performed very well on the assessment do not need to sit through corrections
➔Students who need help can be instructed AND invited for more help during team study
➔Quick response to assessments - students know score
➔Allows for the NEXT class period to be an immediate start to the next chapter
What I Want To Improve On:➔Finding a way to make the comments longer for those that need personalized instruction
➔This was my first attempt, I am sure that I will become for efficient.
