Can teachers have the option of allowing students to pause their video while they are recording. I wouldn't want to allow it every time, but it would be nice if I could decide which video recording assignments they are allowed to pause the video, think, and then keep recording right where they left off.
Thank you for clarifying and I see how this would help save time when grading responses. I'm going to tag this as a "Future Consideration" for the time being since it would require some additional thought and planning on our end to ensure that it doesn't conflict with how our timed limitations, single attempt, and other assessment security related features. That will also give others more time to vote for this feature which will help determine how high of a priority this should be.
What I was thinking is, if I create an assignment where they have to speak/respond to an audio or video prompt, I want to avoid students having long pauses in their response and the recording being 8 minutes long where as if they could pause their recording to think for a moment and then keep recording when they're ready, the total recording may only be 2 minutes of actual content. As a teacher of many students, I don't have time to listen to lengthy recordings with lots of long pauses. I realize having a pause feature takes away from the spontaneity of it, which is why if it was an option, teachers could decide whether to allow students to do that or not.
On the Avant STAMP(STAndards-based Measurement of Proficiency) proficiency test, they are allowed to stop recording, think, and then pick up where they left off. I thought this feature might be useful in certain practice situations but maybe not for an actual test.
I hope that clarifies my reasoning.
Thank you for considering,
Thanks for the suggestion, Jana! Can you please provide an example of the type of question/assessment where you would find this type of functionality useful?
If we do incorporate something like this it wouldn't be something that would work for "Single Attempt" questions since that would make it so the response isn't necessarily spontaneous from the student.
