Testing learner proficiency is a must, but traditional multiple choice/true false assessments can't really test whether a learner can complete a workflow within a software program. Instead of demonstrating competency, the learner skirts around the objective by demonstrating conceptual retention. A good test taker can often pass a traditional assessment without learning to complete the task in real life.

In this session you will learn how to create an interactive software simulation assessment in Adobe Captivate that truly tests whether a learner can perform a workflow. Discover how templates enable you to create multiple, consistent assessments rapidly. Incorporate advanced Captivate tricks that give your learners not just an overall score, but a breakdown of their performance in each section of the assessment. This session assumes basic familiarity with Adobe Captivate.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Why and when to use a Captivate assessment
  • Strategies for writing the assessment
  • How to create a template and the final project in Captivate
  • How to set up advanced actions to show your learners a breakdown of their score in each section
