How to Create Effective Test Questions

CourseArc

Since online learning often separates teachers from learners across time and distance, we rely on evaluations – in the form of tests, quizzes and assessments – to judge each student’s successful comprehension of the content (and to judge how well the course designers presented their information). If every student answers a question correctly, does that mean your question is too easy, or is it a perfect example of an effective test question?

The State of Instructional Design

Tom Spiglanin

This is where the discipline of instructional design comes in. ” And that led me to think about instructional design (and L&D as a whole) as it’s often practiced today: practitioners want solutions they can implement. The needs analysis was often obvious, as were the design choices. Perhaps it’s tempting to blame the design process for failing to produce effective solutions, but I would disagree.

How to Measure Online Course Effectiveness

Emergence of the Performance Catalyst

Each new development offered yet more ways for L&D to design formal learning interventions. Or perhaps we have become known for our innovative instructor-led training designs that keep audiences engaged. ” Perhaps this is a natural aspect of human nature to take the safe path rather than to explore uncharted territory to find better, more effective paths. ” I have called them Learning Catalysts, which Lisa Minogue-White turned into Performance Catalysts.

Three Ways to Speed Up Instructional Design

Mindflash

Business today moves fast, and it’s become critical for instructional designers to ramp up their own processes just to keep pace. Many training designers probably think they can’t move any faster than they already to; they don’t have the resources, or the quality of their work will suffer if they try to crank up their production any higher. Or it’d take two designers almost half a year. Simple: Re-consider how we design learning.

Design for life

Learning with 'e's

In this post, I explore Donald Norman''s ideas around the design of every day objects. This should not so much be considered as a theory, but is a useful perspective on design and human perception. He argued that what we see is directly perceived, and that we extract meaning from the shape and design of the object we are looking at. Its design suggests to us how we might use the object, based on its appearance, and previous experience with similar objects or contexts.

“Good Enough” in Learning and Development

Clark Quinn mapped the learning curve against this framework , 4 charting employee’s performance against the totality of their learning over time. Learning (training) is the cause, and knowledge or workplace performance is the consequence. This may be the case for an individual’s overall performance or capability in the workplace, so the formal education that led to landing the job is a significant but brief part of overall workplace performance.

I Believe that Learning is Inherently Social

Tom Spiglanin

We may follow a manual to effect a repair we’ve never attempted before. Learning by experience can be quite effective. ” But while effective, it isn’t terribly efficient on its own. Learning alone may be effective, but very inefficient. It’s efficient in some ways, but it’s not effective. Developing good elearning programs requires great finesse to mitigate both issues, a challenge met by only the best designers.

My most recent post featured locus of control theory, and today's post is about the Pygmalion Effect in education. The theory Robert Rosethal and Leonora Jacobson conducted studies in American schools during the 1960s focused on the effect teachers can have on the learning performances of children. This effect is commonly known in education as the ' Pygmalion effect ' but is more accurately referred to as the 'observer-expectancy effect'.

I Believe in the Erosion of Hierarchies

Tom Spiglanin

In the last several articles , we focused on aspects of the changing workplace and also discussed behaviors that those of us in the learning and development (L&D) role can adopt to help improve our effectiveness. Still, much of this applies to issues we face today and things we can do to improve our products, designs, and our even approach to workplace learning as an organization. In others, workgroup members have areas of specialization, each performing unique tasks.

Perspective Matters

Tom Spiglanin

While different training departments serve a variety of customers, they all share common attributes: they have a population of workers who use their products and services, a smaller population of managers who look to training to address performance and knowledge gaps, and sponsors who fund the training departments. Within the business units, workers need a sufficient set of skills and knowledge to perform their jobs for the organization to succeed.

I interpreted their collective comments as reflecting the need for substantial change, but that the function would likely continue to exist in some form, or devolve and then reemerge with a different purpose, focusing on removing workplace barriers and directly facilitating improved performance. As I often point out about YouTube, just because an educational video wasn’t produced with the help of an instructional designer doesn’t mean it’s ineffective.

Should we consider a performance support alternative? ” Given that we’re delivering courses in much the same way we have for over a decade doesn’t mean we can’t infuse a little adult learning theory or after-the-fact instructional design. It took about two hours, and I learned enough that I’m confident I could now effect the repair in less than a third the time – I learned that much by just doing the task and meeting the challenges as they arose.
