Standard assessments in Honeycomb

Author-it Honeycomb User Guide

Assessment - standard

Standard assessments follow a traditional question-and-answer format. They can include multiple choice questions only: one to one, categorization, and sequence knowledge checks are not supported in assessments at this time.

In a standard assessment, all the questions you choose comprise a single group of questions. As the course developer, you choose the number of required questions in that group when you create the assessment.

After the learner clicks the Start button to begin the assessment, the WBT presents each question automatically, one after the other, until the learner answers the required number of questions.

To add a standard assessment to a course:

Assessment standard topic structure

  1. Create an assessment topic (parent) based on the Assessment Group - Standard template.
  2. Place the slide at Level 1 in the book contents. Within this topic, you will find the assessment metadata table. We will discuss this soon.
  3. Add one topic based on the Group template for the one group required for a standard assessment.
  4. Place the group object as a child element to the assessment topic. Within this topic, indicate the number of questions you want the WBT to use from this group for the assessment.
  5. Add multiple choice questions as child elements to the group topic.

You can add as many questions as you like to the assessment book. Remember that the WBT randomly chooses questions from the group and presents them to the learner, until it reaches the number of questions you specified in the group topic. For this reason, you should avoid writing questions which build on each other; that is, don't refer to "previous" question content.
