LMS Assessment Capabilities
It is impossible for learners to cheat in the GoTrain LMS platform.
Assessments draw their questions from an assessment bank, this means that no two assessments are alike, ie all assessment questions are delivered randomly and all multiple choice answers are arranged randomly.
You may have 20 assessment questions but only require 10 to be answered, this means the system will randomly choose 10 questions from the bank of 20 to be shown to each student.
For example, both Johnny and Mary and Steve take the same assessment.
Johnny's first question is
What color is the sky?
Mary does not get this question until question 3
What color is the sky?
Steve does not get this question at all.
As you can see, it is impossible for Johnny to tell Mary or Steve the answer to question 1 is a) as Mary does not get this question until question 3 and Steve is not asked this question at all. Mary's answer selection is also randomised so for her the answer is d)
Time restrictions for each question may be set within assessments and allows you to give your students a particular number of assessments attempts.
The GoTrain LMS gives you complete control over your eLearning assessments for secure competency testing:
- Set pass marks from 0 to 100%
- Set time restrictions for each question
- Set the number of assessment attempts from 1 to 99 or unlimited
- Create assessment banks for randomly selected questions
- Choose to randomly rotate assessment answer options
- Mix and match multiple computer scored assessment styles
- Create assessor scored questions - such as essay and short answer
- Link assessment questions to the relevant section or page of study for review
- Present rolling assessments throughout study material
- Provide feedback for wrongly answered questions
Predefine how many attempts at an Assessment a student can undertake before being locked out.
The Learning Management System automatically e-mails Assessors of a students Assessment lockout so they may contact the student if need be to discuss any difficulties and or unlock the assessment for further attempts.
The below diagram shows a scenario of a student attempting an assessment 3 times and beling locked out. The assessor receives an email notification, discusses any learning difficulties with the student and unlocks the assessment. The student can then retake the assessment within the limits set by the assessor until they pass or aqre locked out again.
