Creating level 2 quizzes and training questions

Creating Level 2 Quizzes and Tests That Actually Measure Something

This On-Demand event was originally presented on October 4, 2023 (60 min)


Do you know how much participants genuinely learn from your training programs? If not, you’re not alone. According to a recent ATD research study, 80% of organizations evaluate some learning programs at Level 2 of the five-level evaluation model. Yet only 63% of organizations view the data they collect as having high or very high value.

While these numbers indicate a significant disconnect, there is a solution. Level 2 test and quiz questions can prove whether learning occurred if appropriately constructed and worded correctly. They can also provide important insight into which program topics participants mastered and which they did not. However, these insights are only as valuable as the quality of the quiz and test questions.

In this informative, highly engaging webinar, you will learn tips and best practices on how to write Level 2 quizzes and tests that produce valued data. Emphasis is also given to writing test questions that measure job application, not mere recall of facts.

Attendees will learn

  • How to use facts from a recent Association for Talent Development (ATD) research study to benchmark your organization’s use of Level 2 evaluations.
  • How to avoid the common mistakes made by many L&D professionals when creating Level 2 multiple-choice quizzes and tests that result in the collection of misleading or invalid data.
  • Fifteen tips and best practices for creating valid, scientifically sound multiple-choice test questions.

He is also a measurement and evaluation master, having spoken and gotten rave reviews—at the ATD International Conference on measuring and evaluating learning issues every year since 2008. He also has presented at the Annual Training Conference and Expo every year since 2013 on similar topics.

Ken has pooled his measurement and evaluation knowledge and experience into a series of presentations explicitly designed for L&D professionals. The presentations are highly engaging, practical, and filled with relevant content most L&D professionals haven’t previously heard. In short, they are not a rehash of traditional measurement and evaluation theory—but fresh ideas and solutions.
