An assessment is vital to gauge learner understanding. Otherwise it’s just a mindless exercise in clicking through slides. But, not just any old assessment will do. Our experience tells us assessments are best placed throughout the slides, rather than having one big assessment at the end of the slides. This format ensures a more interactive learning experience and provides a better environment for the learner to retain the information.
Our experience also tells us the assessment questions should be based on a mix of the information from the presentations, and that interactive assessment questions are most beneficial for learners. For more information see Why you should use interactive assessments over multiple choice.
