IVVs Used as Homework

IVVs are designed for use as online assignments such as homework, pre-class tutorials, flipped-classroom lecture segments, or Interactive Web Lectures. The interactivity helps engage students and keep them focused. Many vignettes use the pedagogically effective elicit/confront/resolve strategy, in which the student makes a prediction and then discovers whether or not it is correct. For this reason, it is important that the students feel free to choose answers that reflect what they really believe rather than what they think the instructor wants to hear. Consequently, vignettes should not be used as graded homework.

To provide motivation for students to complete a vignette, they should receive a small amount of completion credit such as a few homework points, an extra point on an exam, etc. This can be accomplished by asking each student to print out and submit the last page of the vignette.
