You can use the Diagnostic Assessment functionality to create an Assessment relating to the topics in your basket. This can then be used as a Stand-alone assessment to identify risks or weaknesses. Administrators can also include it as part of a Pathway which identifies where there are knowledge gaps before directing Users through the required learning. In both cases, the results of the Diagnostic Assessments can be reported on using the Diagnostic Dashboard Report.
Users can use the Diagnostic functionality to self-assess their knowledge on chosen topics.
The Diagnostic Assessment will consist of a number of questions relating to each topic in the basket. When used as part of the Pathway, Users will be prompted to complete this Assessment first. If they are able to demonstrate their understanding of the subject matter by reaching or exceeding the set passmark, they will be Exempted from that Activity. This can be useful for annual regulatory training, saving learners valuable time where they can prove their knowledge on a particular topic.
Depending on the CPD Scheme that a User is set too, they may still be able to earn CPD towards exempt activities.
If on a Time Spent Scheme, they can still open the activity and gain the time spent in it towards their CPD log.
If on an Hours or Value Scheme, the User will not gain any CPD towards an exempt activity even if they open it after the exemption.
Note: a user can choose to bypass the Assessment and complete all Activities in the Pathway if they wish.
When adding Activities to your Pathway through Find Learning, you are able to identify if an individual Activity has questions associated with it and, if so, how many. This will represent the pool of questions to be used in the Diagnostic (and Pathway) Assessments.
