Learning Assessment

Learning assessment topics contain elements that enable you to create interactive tests, quizzes, and exercises.

Tip: Depending on your instructional design, you can append Learning assessment topics as Learning pre-assessment references and/or Learning post-assessment references.
Pre-Assessments
Pre-assessments are useful if you want to check your learners' knowledge about a given subject before delivering a lesson, module, or course. Pre-assessments can also positively boost the learners' engagement in a course as they may raise the students' curiosity about the subject matter.
Post-Assessments
Post-assessments are useful if you want to check your learners' knowledge after delivering a lesson, module, or course. Post-assessments can be used as a summative formal examination or an informal formative assignment that reinforces the information retention.

Learning assessment topics can contain the following elements:

  • Learning Assessment element
    1. title element
    2. short description element
    3. Learning Assessment Body element
