Assessments through the Learning Process

Speaker:  Doug Peterson, Demonstrations Systems Manager, Questionmark

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 assessments such as surveys, quizzes, tests and exams to enhance the learning process.  It will also examine the connection between organizational needs and quality assessment practices.

Who will benefit and how:

This presentation will help learning strategists, training managers and instructional designers address their roles as coaches, learning designers and deliverers of effective training. It addresses the role of assessments in measuring the effectiveness of social learning as well as formal training, giving learners constructive feedback and showing training managers which subject matter areas require more attention.

Key concepts:

  • 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
