Self assessment in combination with CourseLab Editor

Self assessment

Student self-assessment involves students in evaluating their own work and learning progress. Self-assessment is a valuable learning tool as well as part of an assessment process. Through self-assessment, students can identify their own skill gaps, where their knowledge is weak, see where to focus their attention in learning, set realistic goals, revise their work, track their own progress. If online, decide when to move to the next level of the course. This process helps students stay involved and motivated and encourages self-reflection and responsibility for their learning. You should set clear expectations for student performance. As in peer assessment, you need to coach students on assessment criteria and how to apply them in grading their work. Give them practice assessing themselves. A valuable process on its own, self-assessment may be paired with peer assessment. Applying knowledge gained through peer assessment, students’ self-assessment can be a potent next step in actively promoting their own learning and achievement.

At the beginning and at the end of a course the participants fill in a questionnaire where they rate their current knowledge and skills to selected topics related to the course. After this the results are displayed and discussed with the whole group

CourseLab Editor

CourseLab has great acceptance. Its similarity to Power Point was decisive in reducing learning time. It is a SCORM compliant authoring tool that provides a graphical environment for creating interactive e-learning content that can be published on the Internet, on an LMS, on CD-ROMs, and on other devices. The features offered by CourseLab are very intuitive, allowing the user to understand what they can do without having to do it to perceive the result. It supports the programming of actions between objects by clicking with the right mouse button on the object and choosing Actions, thus extending the interactivity and usefulness of the learning object. It is an effective authoring tool but also efficient because it can quickly change the common elements in the corresponding template.

CourseLab can be used to create a wide range of applications:

  • Assessments, quizzes
  • Employee and customer surveys
  • New employee orientations
  • Sales force trainings
  • Guides for policies and procedures
  • Products and services training courses
  • Certification exams
  • Product libraries
  • Interactive product demonstrations
  • Software simulations
  • etc.
