Evaluation Preferences

The Evaluation Preferences page enables administrators to set preferences for each evaluation level and define the default Likert scale used for evaluation questions. The Evaluation functionality enables you to create and deploy Level 1 through 3 evaluations for your learners and managers.

Evaluation Availability: With most learning objects (LOs), the evaluation is available to the user after the LO is completed. However, when an evaluation is used with an event session, the evaluation is only available to the user at the session start time. In the case of a multi-part session, the evaluation is only available at the session start time of the final part.

To manage Evaluation Preferences, go to Admin > Tools > Learning Preferences > Set Evaluation Preferences.

Level 1 (Reaction) Evaluations

  1. Allow level 1 evaluations - Select this option to enable level 1 evaluations for learning objects. If unchecked, the administrators will not be able to associate level 1 evaluations with learning objects.
    • Assign default level 1 evaluation to all courses - Select the learning types for which you want to associate a default evaluation. Note: You can select the specific default evaluation to be associated with each learning type. See Evaluation Defaults - Manage.
  2. Enter the number of days after which the level 1 evaluations expire - Select this option to set an expiration period, after which evaluate link will not appear for the end user.
    • Expiration Period - Enter the number of days the end user will have to access the evaluation. After the evaluation expires, the user's transcript status is changed to Completed, and the user no longer has the option to evaluate the LO.

  2. Assign default level 3 evaluations to all courses - Check learning types for which you want to associate a default evaluation. Note: You can select the specific default evaluation to be associated with each learning type. See Evaluation Defaults - Manage.

Default Likert Scale

Enter values for 5 point Likert Scale which will appear as a default for new questions created for evaluations. Note: Likert Scale values can be changed when creating evaluation questions.

Helpful Hints

  • If making an evaluation required for completion of the learning object, set an expiration period. When the evaluation period expires the course status changes from Pending Evaluation to Completed.
