Long Answer – Online Testing

Online Assessments & Testing - Long Answer

Due to the limitations of modern software, it can be a challenge to include valuable long answer question elements in your online training assessments.

Thankfully, with BIStrainer, you can still integrate long answer questions with a simple three step process:

  1. Each student can self-register, complete all the multiple choice questions, write out all their responses to the long-answer questions and then submit the exam.

  2. Once the student submits the assessment it automatically triggers an email to one or more individuals who are qualified to review and mark the long answer portion.

  3. Once submitted, BIStrainer takes the long answer test results back, weighs it with the multiple choice test results to produce a final score, and if the score is high enough, releases the certificate of completion.

The BIStrainer software is a turn-key solution that allows you to upload thousands of multiple choice questions and combine them with online forms that capture long-answer responses.

Interactive Courses and Assessments

Using interactive media and HTML5, it’s possible to develop engaging video-based scenarios that can help educate and instruct students.

As an example, a video in the course would play out a situation, at some point the video stops and the student is presented with multiple choices, once a choice is selected, the video continues based on the choice made, similar to a video game. This interactive design allows students to immerse themselves in the action and make choices in low-stakes environments.

Situation-based training simulators create an opportunity for the students to select options and see the various outcomes for their choices. The best part is the scenarios do not need to contain right or wrong answers, but could include good, better, best selections, which can improve the decision making of employees who make good choices, but could be doing even better.

Start your students off right by expanding what’s possible with online learning technology.
