Assessments through the Learning Process 

During this presentation, audience members will be invited to answer questions using colored response cards. This activity gives participants retrieval practice, followed by feedback from the presenter – a good way to help them retain information while observing the power of including questions in learning.
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
