Assessments in Informal/Social Learning

I just wanted to let you know about two free white papers from Questionmark which offer insights and practical tips about using assessments effectively in a fast-changing world. The two white papers are:

Embedded Assessments: Building Knowledge Checks, Surveys and Other Assessments into Learning Materials explains how you can gives learners the opportunity to instantly check their knowledge or register their opinions to improve their learning experience.

This white paper will:
  • Explain the basics of embedded assessments
  • Describe their value to learners and instructors
  • Provide examples of where such assessments can be used
  • Explore how they might help shape the future of learning
Assessments through the Learning Process covers the entire range of low, medium and high-stakes assessments, explaining appropriate uses for everything from self-diagnostic tools to certifications. This comprehensive paper helps readers develop high quality surveys, quizzes and tests, deliver them in appropriate ways and analyze their results.

You have to register on Questionmark's site to download the white papers, but it's quick and well worth the effort. Take a look at the white papers and tell us what you think!
