The EDGE Learning supports quizzes and knowledge checks. These can be built into a training using an authoring tool or the Saba Assessments authoring tool. We suggest using the SABA assessment tool when you need detailed reporting within EDGE Learning analytics for text-based assessments. The SABA tool is not suitable for multimedia scenario-style or simulation-based assessments.
You can incorporate a survey into your training to gather feedback from learners. EDGE Learning supports surveys created within authoring tools or the Saba Assessments authoring tool. We suggest using this tool when you need detailed reporting within EDGE Learning analytics for text-based assessments.
A checklist is essentially a to-do list that can contain one or more tasks in a particular order that learners should complete. Once completed, the checklist can be marked as complete allowing the learner to move on to the next activity.
A task is an activity that can be added to a training as a recommendation or a requirement. This can be used to instruct learners to complete a step prior to taking the training such as reading pre-work assignments or logging into a specific website. Tasks can be added to any class type.
