Using the MET LDB Video Data: Access, Scoring, and Linking
This is the first in a series of four webinars discussing the rich and complex quantitative and video data held within the Measures of Effective Teaching Longitudinal Database (MET LDB) at ICPSR, available now for secondary analysis. This presentation offers an introduction to the secure video player, including logistics of selecting and streaming video files, logistics of video scoring, and linking videos to the associated quantitative data. Unique confidentiality concerns inherent in video data and strategies for mitigating risk are also discussed.
You can also download the associated slides. The webinar was broadcast May 22, 2014.
ICPSR has prepared a number of video tutorials about MET data available on YouTube. In addition, the American Educational Research Association and MET LDB staff prepared an introductory video on MET (site requires you create a free account).
