Every exercise is first created as a content module in the admin library. When a content module is added to a group, it becomes an exercise that learners can interact with. Every exercise can include up to four learning stages: Prompt & Response, Peer Assessment, Reflection, and Results.
- The Prompt & Response stage fosters frequent practice.
- The Peer Assessment stage fosters social learning and timely, specific, actionable feedback.
- The Reflection stage prompts self-reflection.
- Finally, the Results stage facilitates coaching.
While the sequential order of Practice exercises follows: Prompt & Response, Peer Assessment, Reflection, and Results, content module creation follows a different sequence. We have found (and research tells us) that when you design content modules by first thinking through the learning objective and how you are going to assess it, your overall exercise will be more effective and will enable your Learners to attain and retain specific skills. Thus, when creating your content module, you’ll be asked to set up your Overview first. This is not a learning stage, but an introductory section to prime Learners as to what they will be practicing and be assessed upon in the upcoming exercise.
After outlining your learning objective in the Overview, you will be asked to create your Assessment. This Assessment will be used by Learners to self-assess their own Submissions and to be assessed by their peers. This assessment will also be used by Instructors to assess submissions.
Once your learning objective and Assessment are set, you’ll be asked to create a prompt video that will ask your Learners to practice and demonstrate the learning objective you set forth in the Overview. Finally, you’ll be asked to create a Model Response. An ideal Model Response demonstrates specific Assessment criteria.
