Questionmark Unveils System for Self-Directed Learning
DALI is an add-on to the Questionmarkâ„¢ Perceptionâ„¢ assessment management system. The new interface opens up a tree view showing topic scores to allow students to see how well theyâ€™ve performed in each topic and to take refresher quizzes on topics that are proving difficult. It provides learners and instructors multiple ways to view information in order to gauge progress in specific topic areas.
- allows a student to select the score level that they wish to achieve;
- highlights the last topic-based feedback provided to the learner;
- provides statistics associated with any selected topic; and
- displays topic descriptions as learning objectives.
â€œResearch has shown that answering questions can dramatically increase learning and reduce forgetting,â€ remarked Questionmark President Eric Shepherd. â€œLearners benefit from being able to understand their knowledge and skills inventories quickly and easily. DALI helps them select the most appropriate learning experiences and quiz themselves on particular topics for retrieval practice and feedback.â€
