    According to a recent ATD research study, 80% of 

    organizations evaluate some learning programs at Level 2 of the five-level measurement and evaluation model. Yet only 63% of organizations view the data they collect to be of high or very high value. While these numbers indicate a significant disconnect, there is a solution. If appropriately constructed and worded correctly, Level 2 evaluations can prove whether learning occurred. They also can provide important insight into which program topics participants mastered and which ones they did not. But these insights are only as useful as the quality of the test questions.  

    In this informative, highly engaging webinar you will learn practical tips and guidelines on how to write Level 2 test questions that produce valued data. Particular emphasis will also focus on writing test questions that measure job application and not the mere recall of facts. 

    In this webinar, you will:

    • Examine Level 2 evaluation facts that serve as benchmark data  
    • Discover fifteen tips for creating valid, scientifically sound multiple-choice test questions
    • Examine the difference between test questions that measure application versus those that measure recall
