How does one assess a learner's progress using Elicitus?
You can assess learners' progress by creating exercises and assessments.
Elicitus enables you to create exercises for topic pages. You can also create an assessment for the entire course. Exercises are for self assessment whereas; the assessments are the trackable units.
Exercises/Assessments can contain ten types of questions: Multiple choice, Drag and drop, Fill in the blanks, True/false, Match the pairs, Multiple correct answers, Graphic choice, Multiple text entry, Visual identification and Sequencing. You have to enter the correct answers for each question, so that it is automatically corrected. You can give different scores to each question. Questions can be based on media resources such as images and audio files.
Elicitus allows setting the pass/ fail percentage for each assessment in the course. You can decide the percentage and the learner will be shown the result at the end of the assessment. In case of SCORM compliance, the result status is passed to the Learning Management System.
Topic level exercises are immediately corrected and the learner will get to see whether the chosen answer is correct or wrong. You can choose to display corrective or reinforcement messages to learners.
You can choose to show or not to show learners the scores and answers of the assessments.
