Measure Knowledge, Skills and Attitudes Securely for Certification, Regulatory Compliance and Successful Learning Outcomes

October 25, 2013.pptx

Assessments play a vital role in measuring employees’ knowledge, skills and attitudes. Effective assessments also help organizations identify learning needs, manage talent, monitor performance and ensure regulatory compliance.

This interactive presentation will explore the different types of assessments and explain their respective applications, with particular emphasis on how trainers and instructional designers can use surveys, quizzes, tests and exams to enhance the learning process. It will also examine the connection between organizational needs and quality assessment practices.

Key concepts that will be addressed

· Using questions and feedback to enhance learning and decrease forgetting

· Types of assessments used before, during and following learning activities

· Setting pass/fail scores for criterion-referenced assessments

· Interpreting item (question) and test statistics to determine reliability

· Basic principles for making assessments support organizational goals

· Emerging practices including mobile delivery and assessment for informal learning initiatives

Objectives:

· Identify business drivers for learning and assessment

· Distinguish among different assessment types and their uses before, during and after learning

· Understand the impact of assessments and feedback on learning and retention
