#Webinar 🎓 Building a learning organisation using knowledge tests

About this event

Knowledge tests, also referred to as achievement or mastery tests, are inseparable parts of current e-learning technologies used in the recruitment process, the development strategy for employees and part of the entire employee life cycle. Consisting of questions designed to assess technical or professional expertise in specific knowledge areas. Organisations use knowledge tests to evaluate what a person knows at the time of taking the test. Unlike cognitive ability tests, there is no attempt to assess the applicant's learning potential. Organisations use a knowledge test to assess what an employee currently knows prior to or post development, but not whether the individual can be relied on to master new material in a timely manner. Knowledge tests are not appropriate when applicants will be trained after recruitment in the critical knowledge areas needed for the job.

However, we understand that knowledge tests are not developed with the adequate care that they should be. Experience in the area of knowledge test has proven to us that they are not designed to reveal the reached level of knowledge. Moreover, testing suites are reviewed very seldom regarding their validity and items correlation. This webinar will present experiences gained during the design and implementation of the HCM Deck platform.

Essential for jobs requiring specialized or technical knowledge that can only be acquired over an extended period of time. We will take a look at different examples of knowledge tests and methods in which they are delivered. We will discuss how knowledge tests are constructed and the basis of an analysis post testing. We will provide recommendations on multiple choice question formats.

The importance of certification and building competencies for successful participants in the development program of your organisation.

Finally we will share examples and available following the webinar to download will be FAQ’s on setting up your first knowledge test.
