Percolate LMS Launches New Quiz Builder to Capture Learner Certainty

Oct 23 2013, 5:32am CDT | by 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). For administrators and learners alike, LCA reporting data provides key (and otherwise overlooked) information that assists in gauging learners’ needs, monitoring progress and checking for understanding. LCA can also be a critical component in helping to identify employee competencies.

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.

For details on using the new Quiz Builder within Percolate or how to create a quiz using learner certainty, there is an online tutorial available on YouTube at http://youtu.be/buyf48uJhYE.

By Livio Filice:For Canadians it is hard to ignore the significant amount of infrastructure construction that has taken place over the past several years with no sign of a slowdown ahead. Various factors have allowed for the projects to take flight, including the simple fact that Canada's aging infrastructure has been neglected since at least the 1970's and is now in a state of disrepair. Further, historically low interest rates has allowed the vari ...
