Scenario-based assessments can be an effective form of evaluation since they represent job-related application of knowledge and skills that can span time, space, people, tools, and various job features. When carefully designed, they can also provide instructors, instructional designers, and other stakeholders with valid units of performance analysis.

This case-study session will show suggested methods and demonstrate the application of the techniques of a Web-based training program developed for the Florida Department of Transportation that utilizes micro-scenarios, interactive simulations of roadways, task-centered quizzes, and 3-D characters as virtual mentors to guide the learners.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to create assessment scenarios, beginning with a task analysis
  • How to identify the performance claims to be made based on target knowledge and skills
  • How to create the story and characters
  • How to identify the sequence of events that provides sufficient guidance to users while increasing validity
  • How to use basic tools to manage the process

Audience: Novice-to-intermediate participants.
