Want to assess your design skills OR someone else's?
One of the most prevalent misconceptions about developing effective training is that you just need some really good content (or a great subject-matter expert) and the rest will fall into place. We agree that really good content is important, but for high-impact training to occur there's more to it than just content.
That's why we developed this Design Assessment. Based on our High-Octane Design model, the assessment focuses on many of the mission-critical skills that someone needs to have if they are going to be creating a truly effective and engaging training program - one that has high-impact and a great return on investment.
To take the assessment, carefully follow the instructions below. You'll find a link to the assessment after the instructions.
How to approach the assessment:
You can complete the assessment based on your design skills, the design skills of someone else, OR the skills of a team of designers. Just be consistent throughout.
How to complete the assessment:
There are two different types of questions: skill questions and short-answer questions.
For EACH of the skill questions you will use a 0-to-12 scale to indicate how you perceive the following three elements:
Recommendation 1: Start with assessing ABILITY for all of the questions, then go back to the top and assess CHALLENGE for all of the questions, followed by IMPORTANCE.
Recommendation 2: Hover your mouse over each activity to read a more in-depth description.
