Assessments through the Learning Process

Eric Shepherd, CEO, Questionmark 

Assessments play a vital role in measuring employees’ knowledge, skills and attitudes. Effective assessments also help organizations identify learning needs, manage talent, monitor performance and ensure regulatory compliance.   

This interactive presentation will explore the different types of assessments and explain their respective applications, with particular emphasis on how trainers and instructional designers can use surveys, quizzes, tests and exams to enhance the learning process. It will also examine the connection between organizational needs and quality assessment practices.


Lunch and Networking

Question: If you had to write down everything you knew about Apollo 13 how would you remember the key points of the mission?

A. Refer to a classroom textbook
B. Review a newspaper article
C. Recall the Tom Hanks movie

Answer: C is selected 98% of the time because information is more powerful and easier to recall from visual memory. 

This session will include an open discussion and exercise to develop a persuasive training course to tap into the appeals and connect to the viewer’s emotions in a visually pleasing way.


We’ve Moved!

Utah ATD will begin holding our monthly events in a new, centrally located venue beginning January 19, 2017! Join us at the Residence Inn Murray (171 E 5300 S) to experience the first event at this updated and central location.

In addition to a new location, January will debut a change to the monthly event format. The event will begin at 11:30-12:00 with lunch and networking. Then, the presentation of the day will run from 12:00-1:30. Presentations will support a variety of areas of expertise, and a significant portion of each presentation will be dedicated to how the information can be used in practical applications. Many of these presentations will also feature activities and more opportunities for participation.

See you there!
