    Assessment should not unduly burden teachers or students Assessment Masters The following assessment tools are intended to be used with many of the most common types of assignments presented on the various For Teachers activities suggested by the CBC Digital Archives They are generic and thus should be used with care Teachers should definitely amend and regularly revise these tools to best meet the needs and demands of their curricula student body and their own personal approach to teaching The masters may be downloaded and then revised to better represent the work in your classroom To help you further many of these assessment sheets have an other section that allows you to easily include any important criteria for the particular education experience that you design for your students These tools are either checklists or rubrics Checklists Each checklist has space to include new items Of course some of our suggested items can easily be replaced removed or simply not recorded Rubrics Most teachers are readily familiar with rubrics However it is important to note that it is not always in the interests of either teacher or student to simply apply a generic rubric to a more particular education experience for a very specific group of learners Rubrics need to be used somewhat deftly and sensitively This suite contains a blank rubric that teachers may wish to use as a model for their own rubric generation A few guiding suggestions for the use of rubrics and checklists are Do not use what you do not understand Be careful when employing rubrics and checklists designed by others They may not fit your situation or needs or those of your students Be sure that the rubric accurately measures what has been taught or experienced If possible design your own or amend other rubrics checklists etc for your particular use It is best to review the rubric or checklist with students before they begin a task or assignment They will perform better when they fully understand how they are to be assessed Ideally they should be able to accurately determine their own placement using the assessment tools If possible employ a rubric or checklist several times over a period of study using self or peer evaluation This reduces your workload and builds up familiarity and skill in the students Review the effectiveness of your rubric after use Be prepared to make ongoing revisions to sharpen its value to you and your students As well if a task changes even slightly it is wise to see that the assessment mechanism fully reflects these changes Build Your Own Rubric Select an activity to assess Decide the criteria to be assessed Choose the descriptors to be used keep it simple and accessible Decide on the scoring strategy to be employed Begin construction Some Tips Use clear simple accurate language Design with the actual students in mind not some abstract ideal conception Start with level 4 and identify the highest but still reasonable and achievable qualities Do not

    programming can eat up a lot of CDs in a short time the system is equipped with a 500 magazine CD jukebox A second RADIOLA system is used to make CD copies of archival material that had previously been stored on inch reel to reel audio tape All programming material once copied is accessible from the department s computer database CBC staff from coast to coast to coast have online access to RADIOLA material through CBC s Intranet This makes it much easier to incorporate old programming into new coverage when reporting on the history of a conflict say or the death of a national figure Holdings 4 000 boxes on site 12 000 boxes in Federal Records Centre in Ottawa The Records Management department stores and manages paper all of the CBC s corporate records from human resources to finance Much of the time it s a largely unseen and thankless task But certain records are critical to the programming archives specifically their stockpile of contracts licensing agreements and production files The basic principle is simple someone or something owns every bit of radio or TV programming If their material is to be used again the owner or the rights holder either has to be paid or to give permission for its use When ownership isn t clear production staff must check the original production records held by records management Those records will identify the rights holder or holders and will also spell out how they are to be compensated for the material s reuse In the simplest cases a CBC produced newscast for instance the owner is already the CBC and there s no restriction on internal reuse or rebroadcast At the other extreme is something like an independent production that aired on the CBC and featured a half dozen celebrity performers That program could only be reused by the CBC or licensed to a third party if the rights holder to the production and every one of those performers is compensated according to the terms spelled out in the original production records and the relevant union agreements Contracts and the Internet Things get even more complicated in respect to the Internet since this new medium wasn t around for most of the CBC s history and isn t mentioned in many contracts The CBC is still negotiating ground rules for Internet use with some of its rights holders That s why that TV show or radio program you were expecting to find on our site may not be there yet To make digging simpler records management has the bulk of its production records stored on microfiche from 1938 to 1976 for radio from 1966 to 1985 for TV More recent material is catalogued in an electronic database Holdings 400 000 negatives The CBC photo archives is a still photo collection held in the CBC Design Library It is made up mainly of publicity shots taken by the CBC photography department in the 1950s 60s and 70s Most

    time too For tapes with serious oxide decay it can be literally peeling off there is another option the ovens No not to burn them but to warm them Over the years people working with old tape have learned that gentle heating for anywhere from six to 24 or more hours at temperatures ranging from 35 65 Celsius can actually cause the magnetic oxide to re bond with the tape backing The tape can then be run through a player and copied but usually only once The shock from the heating and re bonding often renders a tape more fragile so that it falls apart completely after that one last play Such an all or nothing strategy is only tried when nothing else will work Compared to magnetic audio or video tape 16mm film is quite durable As a result most of the work done in the CBC Archives with old film has had to do with preservation and copying rather than restoration In terms of storage the biggest effort has been devoted to re canning That meant taking tens of thousands of film reels out of metal cans and placing them into ventilated plastic cans Slightly more care and attention was required for the several thousand reels afflicted with vinegar syndrome Beyond that transferring film to digital Betacam format usually done when someone needs a copy for fresh use or re sale is a straightforward process First a technician reviews the films using an editing machine typically on something called a Steenbeck The technician then combines small reels onto larger ones and makes minor repairs to damaged splices and damaged sprocket holes The technician also makes sure all picture and sound elements are synchronized The next step is washing For this the film is loaded into a machine with a cleaning tank at the bottom filled with fast drying environmentally friendly liquid The film passes through the liquid over buffer rollers and Particle Transfer Rollers that help remove dirt and then through a sonic shaker that frees up more particles The PTR rollers work like little lint brushes to remove dirt from the film Once film is clean it is turned over to a technician in one of two video transfer suites or scanner rooms The equipment in here is part of a sophisticated computer controlled system that permits the operator to do quick colour and contrast corrections before copying Sometime the before and after results are spectacular At least two digital Beta copies or a BetacamSX are made of any film that passes through the transfer suite sometimes more either Beta or VHS The Radio Archives began taking shape as early as the late 1950s and early 60s The first serious preservation and copying work began in the late 1970s when technicians in the department began copying audio from old acetate discs to tape Acetate discs are durable and once they are vacuum cleaned to remove dust and dirt they are relatively easy to copy The trickiest part

    The 1960s Acetate tape Acetate tape was first introduced for recording in the 1950s The archives only started using it for storage and copying in 1966 While it produced a fine sound it did not age well Over time acetate tape curls shrinks and loses mass Because it does not readily stretch or deform a bonus it tends to break easily a drawback The 1970s Polyester tape The Archives switched to the more durable polyester tape in the 1970s Home users may remember the inch reel to reel tape that was popular before cassettes In terms of composition polyester tape was very similar to the tape still in use today While the sound quality is excellent polyester tape deforms easily so users must be careful not to stretch it Also a lot of polyester tape made between 1975 and 1985 caused later problems for archivists because it began to shed a sticky residue which damaged both tapes and equipment when played Gentle heating in the oven before playing often corrects this problem From the 1970 s you ll find Tape recorder It may look like a washing machine but this equipment actually makes recordings on magnetic tape Turntable This turntable is designed to play acetate disks from an earlier era Unlike newer records some of these discs were recorded to play from the inside out The 1980s to present Digital formats The Archives entered the digital age with the move to Digital Audio Tape DAT for audio storage in 1988 CDs took their place in 1999 The 1950s Kinescopes In the early years after CBC TV debuted in 1952 programs were shot live and copies were made on film using large cameras called kinescopes These machines were set up in front of a TV screen and filmed directly off the screen The films they created usually 16mm sometimes 35mm are called kines At the time the CBC network was still evolving and the best antennas could only broadcast over limited distances so kines were made so programs could be shipped to regional stations for rebroadcast to local audiences there Since then of course these kines have come to be recognized as an immensely valuable record of our early television heritage Without them there would be no record of the early years of live television Come see one at the Archives Kinescope The kinescope recorder was a huge camera used in the pre videotape era to record television shows to film usually 16mm but occasionally 35mm It was placed directly in front of a television set broadcasting the live show and filmed what was on the screen The films themselves are called kinescopes or kines The 1960s Two inch videotape The first two inch videotape machine was used at CBC Toronto in 1959 It wasn t long before tape supplanted kines as the medium of choice Not only was it great for producers directors and actors it permitted re takes and ushered in the era of special effects but videotape was
