As an assessment trainer I am often assaulted by teachers in my workshops over the consequences of assessment. This was a great reminder to me on why the messenger often receives the negative emotional feedback from teachers who may not yet understand the purposes and appropriate uses of assessment results within their school systems. Professors often respond negatively for many of the same reasons. I guess Ill have to accept it as an occupational hazard. Great presentation here!

Good information presented in an appealing way, but pauses between screens were much too long. Students should be able to click next as soon as theyre ready.

Nice job Therese, I will use this in my assertive class, as it compliments a video I show called the art of listening... great job.
