Phase 0/00 winner Inquiry Technologies has received a great deal of exposure, most recently in an article for The Science Teacher – The National Science Teachers Association’s High School Flagship Journal.
The article describes what student screencasting involves and why it is so different from other traditional forms of assessment — in this case, the typical lab report. Student comments show support for the original idea and validate the study.

Our pilot project showed that, regardless of demonstrated writing ability, students can produce clear, articulate, and careful oral explanations.
