Join Aaron Quigley for an in-depth discussion in this video Taking a prequiz and postquiz, part of Learning with Lynda.com.
- As you explore the Lynda.com library, you may come across a course that has a pre and a post test built directly into it. Here I'm on the Flipping the Classroom course page, and I can see in the table of contents that a video has been added at the beginning of the course called, what do you already know. This is the pre test, and it's an opportunity for me to check my foundational knowledge in this particular subject area. After I've watched the course, I can also take the post test, which is titled what did you learn. Not only can I compare my post test to my pre test, to understand some of the learning that took place, the post test will also illuminate for you any areas that you need to review.
Now the pre and the post test is only available to certain members of Lynda.com, and if you pull up the Flipping the Classroom course, you may not see this feature available. If you do come across a course with a pre and post test, I highly recommend that you use them, as it will help make you more of an active learner and help identify the areas of the course that you need to focus on.
