Computer Demonstrations
What is it: Students can be asked to demonstrate proficiency with computer applications such as bibliographic software, database use and construction, Excel spreadsheets or other office software. Webpages or PowerPoint can be used as a presentation devices and programmers can write programs to do certain tasks. Whatever it is, computers can often be used to demonstrate an aspect of learning.

Cautionary: Of course, what is being assessed is the important thing and if the required software skills are not part of a students repertoire or are not required skills to show learning outcomes, this may be a problematic assessment choice. For instance, multimedia students can use this type of assessment to show all sorts of things, but other students (e.g. from nursing etc.) may not be able to construct a computer demonstration so easily. Just remember to ensure you are assessing what the learning objectives are. Note: This may be an option for some people with disabilities.
