Learning Module Tests


Learning Modules are specialised for learning and are oriented towards enhancing and monitoring the learning experience. Their tests have a limited number of Question types available and are designed to assist with learning as opposed to testing. This can be achieved in a number of ways, for example:

  • If a learner gets a question incorrect, the system will allow the learner to retry until they select the correct response.
  • If a learner gets a question incorrect, the system can provide feedback to the learner with the correct response or a clue to the correct response.

NOTE: If you are not certain at this point if a Learning Module Test is the most appropriate test for your purpose please read our overview document on Tests.

Questions are integrated in the Panels of Pages. For more information on this please visit our document on Learning Module Questions (Panels).

The questions are presented to the Users in the Course Player as shown below. The Course Player contains learning material as well as one or more tests.

The settings for a Test in a Learning Module depend on the kind of Panel it will be linked to. More information on Panels can be found in the Learning Module Questions (Panels) document.

Response Analysis

This section is useful for analysing results and drawing conclusions from the data. For example, if a question is consistently being marked as not correct, there could be an issue with the particular question. Alternatively you could use a report to gather this data.
