CDC TRAIN Health Educators & Learning Professionals (HELP) Community of Practice Learning Series. Presentation 14. Learning Assessment
Thursday, June 27th 3:00 - 4:00 pm EST
Our community of practice includes learning professionals with a variety of position titles (Health Educators, Multimedia Specialist, Instructional Designer, College Professor, etc...) and expertise (training analysis, design, development, implementation or deliver, and evaluation, to name a few!). We face the challenge of keep up in a professional field that seems to be growing in diversity with every passing day and at the same time, requiring us to keep up with educating and training our workforce. We hope that this webinar series will help to bridge the gap and provide you with timely and helpful training!
The theme of the webinar this month is Learning Assessment.
Learning assessments determine the e-learning's impact on the intended learning outcomes. E-learning developers should plan an evaluation strategy prior to creating assessment tools. CDC’s E-learning Essentials provides guidance on how to create different assessment types such as formative and summative assessments. The webinar will focus on the different levels of training evaluations and the effective use of assessment techniques such as scenario and question development in summative evaluations. Upon completion of the webinar, participants will be able to
- Create an evaluation strategy including the different levels of evaluation and appropriate assessment tools
- Create learning assessments to measure knowledge or skills gained, learner satisfaction, and on-the-job performance or behavior, based on course objectives and the overall goal following the training
- Use best practices to develop questions and scenarios
CDC TRAIN has a new feature that allows attaching follow up evaluations to a course. A course provider is now able to add not only an initial evaluation that will be given to the learner immediately after the completion of a course, but also can add one or more follow up evaluations that are based on the date the learner completes the course. These can be set for any time period, up to one year, after the completion of a course. Rhonda Willis, EDAB’s Delivery Team Lead and CDC TRAIN Administrator will demonstrate how this process works in CDC TRAIN.
The speaker is Marina V. Costarides, Ed.S., an education professional for almost 20 years in Atlanta, GA. She is an instructional designer working in CDC’s Educational Design and Accreditation Branch (EDAB). Marina designs and develops e-learning for CDC and provides guidance to CDC programs in developing training products to reach various groups of the public health community.
