Will, interesting comment on PFL.

I worked on a course, where we (then Click2Learn) used "Cognative Organizers" at the begining of each module. Basically, the learner would be asked a series of scenario based questions that they did not yet have (or been taught) the information to answer correctly.

Then as they went through the learning module, they would be actively looking for the answers. It gave them motivation and a concept that they could build their learning on.

At the end of the module, we would pose the same questions and show their original answers. They would be able to change them before they were shown the correct answer.

Thanks for the great posts.


i suppose pre-testing is a tool to provide the event to prepare learners for future learning. good thing is, technically we could now leverage that pretest results and prescribe learning path through some programming.
