July’s Workshop

Thursday, July 29

(13:00 – 16:00 or 18:00 – 21:00 UTC)

Using Performance-based Testing to Validate Skills

Performance-based Testing (PBT) is the single best way to validate the technical skills of your learners. In this workshop, we will take a hands-on approach to examine how you can create an exam using tools and services within the Learn on Demand Systems lab development platform, Lab on Demand. Using our scoring technology, you can create comprehensive testing scenarios that learners can use to prove their knowledge in a variety of ways. You can add randomization, grouping and outcomes to dynamically improve the reusability and control the level of activities in your PBT. Once the testing is complete, you can review the scores on the exams and use that data to revise your exam over time.

Key Takeaways:

  1. An understanding of why Performance-based Testing (PBT) works so well
  2. Putting the basic components of PBT in place using IDLx editor
  3. How to introduce the “Chaos Monkey” into your PBT
  4. Evaluating the results of the exams
