Lifelong learning has become an inherent part of the working life. Testing and certifying participants knowledge increasingly becomes more important. Looking e.g. at security trainings, it becomes clear that employees need to know exactly what they are doing. A good example is Planzer Transport AG, a Swiss logistics company training employees with regards to airfreight security. Here, a lot depends on verifiably well-trained staff. Unqualified staff can have catastrophic consequences – not only for the company. However, qualified staff is important in all fields and it is always the fundament of long-term corporate performance.
Employees or partners should not feel too much pressure while learning. This would increase the already high stress level and reduce acceptance. Thus it is important to set up a friendly and appealing learning environment. Courses and tests should be interesting, achievable and fair.
Coursepath allows you to create user-friendly training easily: made from your own learning content. You can enrich learning content with tests and quizzes and other interactive elements. You can simply start by converting a PowerPoint file into a course.
Coursepath offers you these different types of questions to ensure that knowledge has been understood and successfully transferred:
* Development in progress
A true classic among quizzes: checkbox questions such as multiple and single choice or true/false questions. These question types will be rated automatically by the learning platform. They are well known and quickly understood by participants. All that needs to be done is to tick the right box(es). In the near future, it will also be possible to create a question pool in Coursepath and display randomly picked questions.
This question type offers many ways to test participants’ knowledge. The trainees have to write an answer directly in Coursepath. You can choose whether they can upload a file or not. Especially the latter makes this question so diverse: It allows participants to upload any file, such as video, audio or presentation. After this being done, the trainer can assess the submission and review the answer and file. Due to the nature of this question, the grading has to be done manually by the trainer.
To evaluate and improve courses effectively, you should ask for your participants’ feedback. The scale question is a suitable choice for this. A frequently used question is “I found this course helpful”. Here, participants can choose between “I agree”, “so so” or “I disagree”. You can give as many options as needed.
Should you want to ask questions without them being reflected in the participant’s score, you can always deactivate the right and wrong rating. This provides you the means of:
These different kinds of tests and options will allow you to create an interesting, modern and successful training for your employees, colleagues, partners and customers.
We keep on developing new question types in order to have good offers for every learner type. Right now, we are developing the “hotspot image”, ordering and matching questions. Should you want to be informed about the progress or have suggestions, let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org.
