As organizations apply microlearning to their learning strategy, they are discovering that it is a great way to make learning stick and help employees master complex topics. Microlearning enables employees to consume training content in bite-size chunks right on their mobile devices, without stepping out of the “performance moment.”
An often-overlooked hero of effective microlearning programs is the micro quiz. Micro quizzes are light, interactive practices that are spread strategically throughout your microlearning program. They are typically limited to 5 text-based questions on a narrowly defined topic, skill or competency. It’s important to note that micro quizzes aren’t the long, high-stakes assessments that we often encounter in formal training curricula. They don’t lead to some sort of certification or serve a compliance purpose.
