Assessments are often an umbrella term for test, evaluations or exams. In the case of ConveYour - we use "assessment" a bit differently to describe a specific type of question, where one answer could be perceived as the BEST answer. Assessments are just one of many engagment format offered by ConveYour to "engage" audiences with your content. These content engagements are offered within lessons that you can easily build within ConveYour.
Similar to a poll BUT with one main distinction. Each answer you provide would have a different point value assigned.
Assessments vs Polls
When would I use a poll, and when would I use an assessment?
Polls are great when the answer to your question is subjective; when there is no answer better than the others.
Polls work well when you are trying to gauge where your audience stands on a certain question or topic. It also allows participants to see how their answer falls within the spectrum of the other participants.
Assessments work well when one answer learners select would be perceived as a better answer than the others. Therefore, the answers have a scale of points assigned highest for best answer to lowest for the least desirable answer.
Each answer is associated with a different point value.
ConveYour Assessments are an excellent tool to make distinctions among participants, and segment them into groups. Using scores to segment groups of learners allows you to tailor messaging to specific subsets based on scores.
For example, a question like "How many times did you look at your phone in the last hour?". You could offer answers like
A few times,
A ton of times, I'm addicted help!. Then with each option you could associate a sliding scale of points with
none! having the highest amount of points. From there, you could segment your contacts based on low-scores to high, knowing that the lower-scoring group might need to do some work around setting personal boundaries. Messaging to this group would be different that to the high-scoring group.
Very simple. Players receive the amount of points you set for a given answer option.
- Which of the following BEST describes (X) ....?
- How would you rate your performance of (X)...?
- Pre-assess a student's understanding on a topic prior to a larger course.
- Help your prospects identify where they need help so you can provide a better solution.
- Provide an assessments prior to coaching or consultation calls.
- Using scores to segment the audience, and automated messaging tailored to each segment.
