What is an Acceptable Passing Test Score for eLearning Courses?

eLearning Brothers

I think the harder question is, what is an acceptable passing score on a knowledge check or course test? What criteria do you use to determine passing scores? As project managers, we need to work closely with our Subject Matter Experts to identify the purpose of testing and accurately determine what a passing score should be. They just need practice to build their knowledge.

Why Cut Scores Matter

Training Industry

The cut (passing) score has now been changed to a pass/fail system at 90 percent. The situation however, calls into question how the cut score was determined and I would say it questions then how the test items were created as well. If someone arbitrarily sets a score, which many companies and organizations do, then what does that say about the integrity of the exam? And neither did setting the score at 100 percent for missileers, which lead to cheating. So, how do you set a cut score? News reports about U.S. Do they know how to develop test items?

High Customer Satisfaction Scores Might Make Your Training Organization Obsolete

Training Industry

If you’re a trainer or training professional, you probably use some type of customer satisfaction score to measure how happy students are with the courses that you offer them. If your satisfaction scores are high, you communicate that message out to the organization to highlight what a great job you’re doing. In fact, high satisfaction scores might well be hiding the fact that many of your training customers are ready to jump ship and find another provider. The process is called Net Promoter Score or NPS. Anyone who score you a 9 or a 10 is considered a promoter.
