- [Providers] Online facilitation inspired by car dealers
We have recently bought a different car, a used car. We started with a search on the Internet. Then we went one afternoon to some dealers to watch the cars. We met the first salesman there.

He questioned us and soon realized that my husband was sensitive for station models and I had a crush for colors, my daughter wants to have a red car.

| WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2010
The context provided by a scenario helps to care for this. By Shelley A. Gable. Why do we include written or computer-based quizzes in training? First, I'll acknowledge that the ideal type of level 2 training evaluation is a skill assessment that simulates actual, observable job tasks. That said, I'll go back to the original question: Why include quizzes in training? Here's a few reasons. A quiz can be a useful tool for taking a pulse check during training.

If not, please give me a minute of your time. Objectives have a purpose. They are NOT just to tell participants what they will learn at the beginning of a course. I think of them as a contract.
