Effort & Duration
“How do you know if someone has learned something?” You ask them a question and notice how long they take to answer the question as well as how accurate their response is.
“How do you teach someone how to do something?” You carefully show them and explain to them the exact steps and why each step is important. Then you have them do it. If they do not perform it in a reasonable amount of time or they perform it incorrectly, they will have to reflect on what was not performed right and correct the mistake.
Using these principles of time and accuracy, the client wanted to set up a quick-to-understand dashboard that would tell who learned and who struggled when learning the concepts.
The bottom line of education is that when a student graduates they will know how to perform procedures correctly and in a timely manner. Taking this entire classroom/lab experience for students, professors and colleges/universities alike on to an online platform while ensuring the experience of learning/practicing remains interactive, accurate and quick while also providing meaningful insights of the reams of data collected during the learning process to all concerned stakeholders.
