VID1b Final Exam is Online

The final exam for VID1b is ready for beta testing. It has 76 questions. The questions come from Units 1, 2, 3, 6, and 8. The other units are all performance based and are assessed with rubrics. I’d love any feedback or suggestions.


Unit 6 in VID1b is Ready

There are 51 new tutorials, a new knowledge check, and a new test for VID1b that are ready for beta testing now. The unit only takes about two hours to complete for most students. Unit 6 reviews the existing shots and shooting rules, and then introduces about 30 new kinds of shots. Each new shot has several examples, with a full explanation of the shot’s purpose and scenarios where it might be used. The KC and test are designed to measure application of these shooting rules, not just the definition. So the test shows an example of a shot (NOT one they’ve already studied – an entirely new example). The students must identify which shot type it is. I hope that this unit will teach students to incorporate a much wider diversity of shots and shot purposes into their projects. Please let me know if you find any mistakes.
