Even if you fail to answer correctly, you’ll still end up with more knowledge than when you started. Here are 10 benefits of quiz games in corporate settings.
- Testing identifies gaps in knowledge.
- Testing improves transfer of knowledge to new contexts.
- Testing provides feedback to HR and lets them know what is learned or what is not.
- Testing causes employees to learn more from the next training. Essentially it reduces forgetting which makes the next related learning area more productive.
- Retrieval aids later retention. There is clear evidence from psychological experiments that practicing retrieval of something after learning it, for instance by taking a quiz or test, makes you more likely to retain it for the long term.
- Testing produces better organization of knowledge by helping the brain organize material in clusters to allow better retrieval.
- Testing can facilitate retrieval of material that was not tested. Surprisingly there are circumstances where quizzes or tests, particularly if delayed, can help people retrieve/retain information that was related to that asked but not actually asked in the questions.
- Testing improves metacognitive monitoring – by giving employees scores or self-assessments, they can better predict their knowledge and be more confident about what they know and what they need to know.
- Testing prevents interference from prior material when learning new material.
- Frequent testing encourages employees to learn. Having frequent quizzes and tests motivates learning and reduces procrastination.
CTrivia is a learning and engagement tool your employees will love. They will spin the wheel and get a random question from a custom developed question bank based on your training material.
If a learner wants to know more about a certain category in the spin wheel, they can browse the associated “learning directory” containing PDF’s, and Video’s.
They will learn, compete, and have a lot of fun.
