Assessment by Pecha Kucha 20x20: A case study

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This case study discusses the use of the Pecha Kucha 20x20 (PK) presentation format, consisting of 20 PowerPoint slides set to forward automatically after 20 seconds, for assessment. 36 students in a Level 6 Business Management module were required to present a research proposal in the PK format and received oral formative tutor and peer feedback, before submitting a final version for summative assessment. The PK format was used in order to introduce more variety and authenticity to assessment in this module, to counter some practical problems associated with using presentations for assessment, and to facilitate opportunities for formal formative feedback. Informal student feedback and data from module evaluation questionnaires suggests that the PK format effectively met all three objectives. Due to the small scale of this case study, further research is needed to explore whether this outcome can be sustained in other contexts.
