Scottsdale, AZ, October 23, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Michaels & Associates announced news of the latest Percolate LMS™, housing a more robust Quiz Builder tool that easily captures learners’ certainty using a new feature called Learner Certainty Assessment (LCA).
With the optional learner certainty feature enabled, an assessment question is presented and then learners are prompted to select how certain they are that their answer is correct. At the end of the assessment, learners receive a summary chart showing color-coded marks (red, green and yellow) for each question based on their answer, the correct answer and their level of certainty.
For administrators and learners alike, LCA reporting data provides key (and otherwise overlooked) information that assists in gauging learners’ needs, encouraging self-direction, monitoring progress and checking for understanding.
“We are thrilled that the latest Quiz Builder now offers this unique engagement opportunity during a training assessment. We see this as an important benchmark in the development of Percolate that will truly benefit both learners and organizations,” said Sherry Michaels, President of Michaels & Associates. “Learners are now better able to understand the accuracy of their knowledge. And organizations can easily include learner certainty as a strategy for assessing competence, discovering more about learners’ needs and adjusting instruction where needed. This ultimately improves individual achievement, training materials and test questions.”
Sherry believes Percolate’s learner certainty feature is a game-changer in the learning management system (LMS) industry. “We don’t know of a single LMS that incorporates learner certainty into an assessment as easily as Percolate does for both learners and administrators," she says. Unlike other certainty-based assessments, there is no penalty or reward for indicating certainty. The payoff of using LCA is that the results provide a clear picture of how well learners know and how likely they are to remember the material. For some companies, this can be a critical component in helping to identify employee competencies.
