Knowledge Check Example
A knowledge check is used to “check” if the learner has read the information. Each question is placed strategically at points throughout the elearning experience. These points “check” that the learner has understood the chunk of information just learnt. A knowledge check will not record the score. Instead a knowledge check requires a correct answer for the learner to continue the elearning experience. The learner has unlimited attempts to get the answer correct. The learner is free to go back over the content to find the correct answer. Once the learner selects the correct answer and continues, then it is also confirming that the learner has read and understood the information.
There are two reasons why knowledge checks are important. The first is they ensure the learner has read and understood the information. A knowledge check keeps the learner accountable. If knowledge checks were not in place the learner could skip through the entire elearning experience without reading one word. Knowledge Check’s keep the learner actively alert and engaged in the elearning process. The alternative is to have all the questions at the end of the elearning experience, but the learner can forgot most of the information by the end. Knowledge checks ensure the learner has actively engaged with the learning content.
