An Authentic Assessment

This is an example of a formative authentic assessment from  a 'Presentation Skills' Course.

It is an online assessment of a session on 'PowerPoint'. Following completion of the session, learners will be asked to produce a short autoplay PowerPoint presentation, demonstrating appropriate use of graphics, with an accompanying voice narrative. They will upload it to Youtube (optional – privacy mode) share the link with their peers and invite feedback.

Activity Brief: 
Using no more than 10 slides, you will create a Power|Point presentation to identify the following:
What you consider to be best practice in terms of planning PowerPoint presentations, formatting and presentation style
Pitfalls to avoid when creating a PowerPoint presentation
Types of learning and information sharing scenarios that can be enhanced through PowerPoint
How you will implement PowerPoint in the future, identifying what you will do differently as a result of the programme.
Share your link and invite your colleagues to provide feedback.
