Informal Assessments


How well does this learner know the material?  You can get an estimate of a learner’s knowledge base by their discussion of an image or short video.

You can get an idea of their interest by the questions they pose.


Mixing with Face-to-Face Learning

  • Follows naturally every time these resources are integrated with face-to-face teaching
  • Informal, qualitative
  • Instructor should provide verbal feedback immediately 



  • Ubiquitous, natural
  • Not quantitative, not documented




Formal Assessments



  • If we’ve got over 450 multiple choice questions, making a quiz should be possible


Mixing with Face-to-Face Learning

  • Present a lecture
  • Ask the learner to go take the quiz


  • Requires multiple computers close at hand
  • Easier to hand out a paper quiz for a small group
These quizzes may prove to be more useful in a large group setting, if everyone has acces to a computer.



Self-Assessment Quizzes

  • Collections of questions the learner can go through alone to determine his/her mastery of the material
  • Example:  See questions below on this page

  • No results are measured (self-assesment).

Self-Contained Qiuzzes / Continuing Education Quizzes

  • AAET = American Association of Electrodiagnostic Technologists
  • Beta testing CE
  • Learner takes a quiz at his/her leisure
  • Can go back and change his/her answers until results submitted
  • Once submitted, scored instantly, results emailed to proctor, and feedback given to learner


  • Concept well-received
  • Many have taken the sample quiz
  • Development still in process
