Welcome to VOCAT

Welcome to Baruch College's Video Oral Communication Assessment Tool (VOCAT), developed by our Bernard L. Schwartz Communication Institute.

What is VOCAT?

VOCAT is a highly flexible and extensible web application designed to help students become confident, dynamic public speakers. It enables students to easily access videos of their oral presentations and to review and respond to instructor feedback. VOCAT aggregates videos and instructor comments for each user and offers an informative snapshot of a studentís progress over the course of a given term or even an entire academic career. Since 2007, over 15,000 students have used VOCAT in a wide variety of courses at all levels.
