The world of corporate learning is moving toward the 70+20+10% model. This suggests about 70% of learning happens on the job, 20% via feedback from colleagues and peers and 10% in formal training. SharePoint is one of the key enablers of this move, with its widespread use for blogging, wikis and document repositories. Assessments (quizzes, surveys, tests and exams) are a critical part of learning – helping diagnose what you need to learn, giving feedback on learning, measuring and reinforcing what you have learned. Assessments are also useful in SharePoint for those using it for more formal training and also to keep track of compliance with regulations within SharePoint.
