Taking The Guesswork Out Of eLearning Assessments

eLearning assessments can be a challenge to design and develop. Often there is uncertainty about what and how to appropriately incorporate and too little time for development. As a result, many eLearning assessments do not maximize learning value. However, with some quick planning, careful alignment with your objectives and content along with well-constructed questions and activities, you can significantly increase learning and retention. More effective learning accelerates proficiency and performance.

Are your assessments meeting stakeholder requirements? What should be measured? Are your assessments carefully aligned with your objectives to foster learning? Do you have access to learning analytics to help shape instructional design decisions?
