Sylvain Briol's curator insight, January 12, 2013 4:05 AM

Here are some tools to create online quizzes.
But having the tools does not mean your test is actually accurate:

Are you sure it assesses the right skills? Are you sure you cover all the elements? Are you sure your question is good? Are you sure your trainees will understand what you ask?

 

Imagine you've never driven a car and you've never seen anyone driving one. Someone gives a car key and just says: "Go, have fun!" ... how long do you think you'll need to find where to put the key, then how to start the engine, and then to even move the car... how long before having fun?
==> Having the tool is useless if you don't know how to use it. Assess Group can help you build quality tests - even for soft skills!

 

... Good ressource though ;)
