Emerging Themes: Assessment

Assessment was a featured topic of discussion for DMAC attendees both formally addressed on the schedule as well as in conversations. In interviewing participants about their multimodal assignments, assessment came up again.

Initially, I (Katie) think I’d hope to get a clearer idea of how to assess multimodal writing through these readings and more specifically through our interviews. But assessment is a gray area, to say the least, especially when considering new ways of composing.

Below are three vignettes of our participants’ thoughts on assessment. Their insight might not give a step-by-step, how-to approach, but they address what factors come into play when assessing multimodal works and the ways in which they are working through them.
