Frame questions that test learners on performance-
based learning objectives.
Setting performance-based learning objectives will
help you pick the right need-to-know content to help
learners achieve them, and the questions to test them
on the same.
with Learning Objectives
Use an LMS to Track
A Learning Management System (LMS)
stores eLearning assessment results and
helps you track the participation, progress,
and performance hurdles of your learners.
This helps you improve your training
courses and evaluation methods.
eLearning courses should have at least one
formative assessment after each learning point.
Formats Used in Formative
The learner needs to judge if the given statement or
group of statements is true.
This question type shouldn’t be used often because
there is a 50% probability of getting the right answer
There are 2 variants of MCQs.
Single Select: The question has only one right
answer. If there are 4 options, the probability of
guessing the right answer is 25%.
Multi Select: The question can have multiple
correct answers. The attempt must be
followed by feedback explaining why each
option is correct or incorrect.
2. Multiple Choice Questions
An incomplete statement is given.
The blank can be filled by typing the answer or by
dragging and dropping one of the available options.
3. Fill in The Blanks
Such questions require learners to drag an
element from one position and place it in another
appropriate position – to answer the question.
Some Variants Include:
Drag and Match
Drag and Drop
4. Drag and Drop Assessments
5. Other Engaging Formats
Engaging performance-based eLearning assessments
lead to enhanced evaluation.
Here are some formats you can try:
Scenario-based eLearning Assessments:
A good tool to check how learners apply
knowledge/skills in different situations
Simulation-based eLearning Assessments:
The Try and Do phases of Watch-Try-Do simulations
can be used to test learners on software usage.
