    Do you write learning assessments as an afterthought to the ID process? Do you spend too much time remediating failures? Do you feel stuck using assessments as a way to “check the box” rather than truly test learning? Would you like to explore common pitfalls and learn how to write effective questions?

    You are not alone! In this interactive presentation, we will discuss the value of writing effective learning assessments. We will examine actual test questions, identifying the most common issues and best practices that can be used to write more effective quesitons.


    By the end of this interactive presentation, you will be able to:

    • Explain the purpose of learning assessments and their role in the learning process
    •  Identify common issues with test questions that use a multiple choice/multiple response format
    • Describe best practices to write “better” test questions

    Do you write learning assessments as an afterthought to the ID process? Do you spend too much time remediating failures? Do you feel stuck using assessments as a way to “check the box” rather than truly test learning? Are you challenged with writing questions that support learning? Would you like to explore common pitfalls and learn how to write effective questions?

    You are not alone! In this scenario-based workshop, we will discuss the value of writing effective learning assessments, when to write them, and who the key folks are that can help you. We will examine actual test questions, identifying common issues and rewriting those questions in a way that more effectively measures learning. Stay for the full-day option to get an added bonus: You will write actual test questions for a course of your own, and you will have a chance to receive peer and instructor feedback.

    •  Explain the purpose of learning assessments and their role in the learning process
    • Identify at least 12 common issues with test questions that use a multiple choice/multiple response format

    Chatbots: A Practical Use of Artificial Intelligence to Aid Corporate Learning

    Chatbots are becoming more and more commonplace for consumers to help automate simple tasks and make life easier. But what about utilizing chatbots to facilitate learning?

    In this session, you will see examples of common chatbots on Facebook and Slack that are transactional and responsive in nature and contrast them with programmatic chatbots that drive a learning experience. You will also see examples of the various channels you can reach learners through a chatbot such as SMS, Facebook or even via your corporate learning mobile app.

    Finally, we'll really get your brainstorming juices flowing with lots of creative ideas on how this form of artificial intelligence can transform your digital learning infrastructure!

    For some food for thought before this session, check out Vince’s article about chatbots in TD Magazine:
