This article will explain the steps involved in creating an Assessment Huddle. Assessment Huddles are typically only used by Higher Ed programs/instructors who want student submissions of performance-based videos. This type of huddle is appropriate, then, for those assessees who have field supervisors and have the ability to submit video in lieu of one or more visits.
Who is this article for?
Based on the default user settings in the Sibme platform, you should have permission to complete this task if you are one of the user levels listed below. If you do not see the screens in this article, you can ask your administrator if you have permission.
Creating an Assessment Huddle
Sibme's Assessment Huddles were designed to assess performance-based skills through assessee-submitted video. If the Account Owner has enabled Assessment Tracker in this account, and the person wishing to create the Assessment Huddle has the appropriate level of permissions and privileges, the first step is to select the Huddle tab from the Home Screen. From the Huddle area, select the green “New Huddle” button. This will open a window with three choices of huddles: Coaching/Collaboration/Assessment.
When you select the Assessment Huddle, you will be taken to a screen with a series of choices and options.
You will need to name the huddle and select when the submission is due (date & time). PLEASE NOTE: ALL TIMES WILL BE STORED IN US CENTRAL STANDARD TIME. In addition, you will need to decide how many video submissions and/or resource submissions will be required--you can choose up to 10.
What this means is that prior to the submission deadline, the assessee can submit and re-submit videos multiple times. This can be useful for students who realize they submitted the incorrect video or for students who decide that they want to re-record a video in an effort to make some improvement. As long as you have allowed for multiple submissions and as long as those submissions are made prior to the due date, this will be possible for the assessee.
Next, select the members or a group for this huddle under Huddle Participants--these are the people who are already participating in your account. Or, if you have the permission, you may add a new user from outside of the account.
After selecting the participants, select their role within the huddle. Will they be an assessor or will they be an assessee? By default, the person creating the account will be an assessor in the huddle. There can be multiple assessors and there must be at least one assessee in the huddle.
NOTE: Assessees can only view and interact with videos they personally uploaded and will not be able to view videos submitted by other participants in the Huddle.
Before leaving this screen, please select the “More Settings” button in the lower right side of the screen next to the green Create button. Here, you have additional choices.
One choice is whether or not to enable Video Marker Tags. By default, these are selected. Another choice is whether to include a Rubric. By default, this is selected. If you keep the Rubric selected, you have the task of deciding which rubric to use. Even if there is only one Rubric in the account, you still will need to select it from the dropdown menu on the screen. You also have two additional choices that are not selected by default. One allows the assessee to see the assessment summary and the other allows them to comment and reply to comments on their video submissions. After completing your selections, select the green “Done” button. This will take you back to the “New Assessment Huddle” screen for a final review. When everything is reviewed, select the green “Create” button.
Sibme will automatically take you to the new huddle that you just created.
While this article focused primarily on how to create an Assessment Huddle, there are additional articles that walk you through the steps of all of the tasks you can complete in an Assessment Huddle, such as tagging standards and identifying performance levels for the standards that are tagged.
