- [Instructor] Many courses on the LinkedIn learning platform now contain multiple choice quizzes at the end of chapters. These quizzes are optional, but they are recommended. They're not graded but instead focus on helping you to validate your understanding and to learn better. These chapter quizzes can be retaken as many times as you'd like, so let's take a look at an example. Right now, I'm in the Learning Canvas 2017 course by Oliver Schinkten. Seems like a pretty cool guy and if I go up here to the Contents tab, you'll notice in the table of contents that at the end of the chapters, it says Chapter Quiz.
Now, when I click on one of these, it brings up that chapter quiz. I can click here to start the quiz. I can read the question and let's say here, that I now click on any answer. I'll go here and click on this one. It tells me that I got it incorrect, but when you do get one incorrect, it will then show you the video in which that answer was explained. So you can easily go back, watch it, and find out why you got it incorrect. Here, I'll go to next question, Common Core standards are preloaded, click on True, and in this case, it's letting me know that that is correct.
So these quizzes can really help validate your learning and ensure yourself that you're understanding the information that's being relayed in the videos. Now, another great benefit is that LinkedIn Learning now offers, CPE, or continuing professional education courses. These courses include chapter quizzes as well as a graded multiple choice exam at the end of the course. Users who are attempting to earn a CPE certificate for credit must pass the exam. Users who aren't seeking these credits can still take the exam, simply to self-test their knowledge.
And example of this is the critical thinking course. This one is eligible for these continuing education units. So here, under the overview, if I scroll down, you'll see here that it is a CPE course and it tells you what you need to do. So in order to earn those units, you need to complete all the videos and to score a 70% or higher on the final exam. So that's another great benefit on the LinkedIn Learning platform. Finally, some certification prep courses now include graded multiple choice practical exam that emulates the actual certification exam.
This practice exam can be taken with or without a timer and scores are broken down by subject domains to give more specific feedback to the learner. For these, it's important to note that practice exams are not the actual certification exams. They're simply a tool to prepare for those exams and an example of that is in this Cert Prep for the CompTIA Security exam and this is a course that's preparing you for that exam. Now, when you're done with it, you can see down here at the bottom it says Launch Practice Exam.
If I click on that, ti gives me some information. I can decide if I want it timed or untimed and it's a great way to practice for a certification exam. So take advantage of these assessment tools to help improve your learning experience and in some cases, to earn continuing education credits or to practice for a certification exam.
