Canvas - Integration - Extempore
Extempore is approved for use within the Digital Learning Environment (DLE). This product requires an institutional license; contact your institutional Canvas administrator for more information.
Extempore allows instructors to obtain and assess authentic speech without having to schedule face to-face time with each student. Instructors can now create an activity on the Extempore website, selecting a set of parameters for each question, depending on the learning objectives. When configuring a final exam or any other form of summative assessment, for example, the teacher may limit the time the student has between reviewing the prompt and answering the question
The Extempore app also allows the instructor to decide whether students can re-record their answers. For practice assignments or for any other form of formative assessment, on the other hand, timing restrictions can be more flexible.
Interested faculty and staff should contact their institutional admin if they are interested in using this tool.
