When learners make clever guesses in eLearning assessments, it can actually skew the results of your assessment. A simple yet powerful way to tackle this is to assess learners through a confidence-based assessment. This type of assessment measures the correctness of answers as well as the confidence of learners. It’s a good strategy to encourage learners to gain mastery over the training content.
In a confidence-based assessment, learners are required to rate their confidence of the answer they’ve selected. Selecting an incorrect answer and being highly confident about the answer can earn them negative marks. Imagine learners being confident of incorrect knowledge. This could result in a disaster at the workplace, especially in fields such as healthcare, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, and chemical industries.
