"How Do You Know? Assessments Through the Learning Process"

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 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.

Key concepts that will be addressed: 
  • Using questions and feedback to enhance learning before, during and following learning activities
  • Interpreting statistics to determine reliability of questions and tests 
  • Using assessments to support organizational goals 
  • Emerging practices including mobile delivery and assessment for informal learning initiatives

3 Learning Objectives
  1. Identify business drivers for learning and assessment
  2. Distinguish among different assessment types and their uses before, during and after learning 
  3. Understand the impact of assessments and feedback on learning and retention
