Audio-Visual 'Gobbets' for Exam Purposes

Author: Nathan Abrams and Phil Marston

Type: Case Study


All final year (4th level) exams in History at the University of Aberdeen require a 'gobbets' section designed to test the student's familiarity with primary materials and ability to analyse the content and historical significance of such primary material. In this case study, the teaching staff produced appropriate exam gobbets, namely film clips, to test the students' ability to 'read' a film text in terms of audio-visual content (cinematography, sound, mise-en-scene, editing and message).
