Individualised video screencasts with accompanying narration were used to provide assessment feedback to a large number (n = 299) of first-year Bachelor of Education students at Edith Cowan University in Western Australia. An anonymous online survey revealed that nearly three times as many respondents (61%) preferred video feedback to written feedback (21%). The results reflect a clear preference for video feedback among the research participants. Participants commented that video feedback was clearer and less ambiguous than other forms of feedback and improved both the quality and quantity of the feedback received. Participants also felt that video feedback established greater rapport with their tutor and provided them with greater insight into the assessment process.
