Partial Coverage with Traditional eLearning Course

Many traditional eLearning courses end with a final quiz, with questions drawn from a question pool. Each learner only receives a random sampling of questions. For example, you may create a pool of 50 questions, and every learner will receive a random 25. 

The downside of this approach is two-fold. First, you are only measuring immediate recall. Second, you are only measuring recall on a tiny fraction of the total content. 

Further, if learners only need to be accurate on 20 of 25 potential questions to “pass,” they only need to understand a fraction of your total concepts to complete their training.

Universal Coverage with OttoLearn

In OttoLearn, there are no quizzes. Instead, learners are presented with a personalized selection of Activities. As learners complete these Activities, OttoLearn determines their level of mastery on the corresponding Concepts.

When a knowledge gap is detected, OttoLearn has the learner practice that Concept’s Activities more. For this reason, we recommend creating 3-6 Activities per Concept. Areas that you perceive will have a larger knowledge gap should have more Activities (to provide more practice).

Since Activities are dripped out to learners over time, every learner will eventually exercise every Activity; this provides universal coverage of the material.
