The definition of video-based assessment is a new, evolving concept. The Lavi Institute is the pioneer in the use of video-based assessments. It is new and unique. We define it as the use of narratives in video format as a way to elicit a variety of verbal and non-verbal responses from individuals (ages 3:0 years to adulthood) with the purpose of analyzing and measuring these individuals’ ability to understand and respond to various real-life social situations presented in a video-based format. It is a digital medium that combines the storytelling power of television and the authenticity of real-life social situations to obtain the most naturalistic responses. It is a powerful and prolific testing tool that is both effective and time efficient.
