Evaluation questions for your e-learning

Using Evaluation Questions in E-Learning

Sometimes in e-learning, you want to pose questions without actually testing knowledge. For instance, you might want your participants to fill out an evaluation of your e-learning. In Pluvo, there are various ways to achieve this. This article provides you with a few examples!

1) Multiple Choice Question

The multiple-choice question can be used if you wish to employ a Likert scale. The Likert scale is a five (or seven) point scale used to measure the degree of agreement with a statement.

For example:

"How valuable did you find the content presented during the e-learning?"

Exceptionally valuable
Very valuable
Somewhat valuable
Not very valuable
Not valuable at all

Where A is "Exceptionally valuable," B is "Very valuable," and so on. Ensure assigning one point to each answer option, so no answer option is considered 'wrong'.

Make sure to turn off 'Show answers in random order'.

Additionally, ensure 'points count towards final score' and 'show score to participant' are turned off in the lesson settings. This way, the evaluation questions in the lesson won't be graded.

You can also use numbers on a scale of 1 to 5 with a multiple-choice question. For instance: "What rating would you give this course on a scale of 1 to 5? (Where 1= very dissatisfied and 5= very satisfied)"

Where A is 1, B is 2, and so on.

2) Open-Ended Question

Instead of the multiple-choice question, you can, of course, collect ratings through an open-ended question (even easier!). You can also use the open-ended question as a free-response field, for example:

"What have you learned in this course?"

Ensure 'points count towards final score' and 'show score to participant' are turned off again if no question in your lesson should be graded. If there are questions that require a score, set maximum points for the open-ended question to 0. This way, the written answer will never be counted as 'wrong'. No points will be awarded, and someone can fill in their opinion.

3) Google Forms

If you want to add a more extensive questionnaire to your e-learning, you can also create a Google Forms (respondent link) and add it to the lesson module via the "embedded media" button. Participants can then fill out this questionnaire within the lesson module.

Example Questions

Below are sample questions you can ask your participants after they have completed a course to collect feedback:

Open-ended questions:

What did you learn from the e-learning?
What will you do differently now that you've completed the course?
How can this course be improved?
What did you like about the course?
How has this course developed you professionally/personally?

Multiple-choice questions:

Question: How likely are you to recommend the course to a friend or colleague? (from very likely to very unlikely)
Statement: The course met my expectations (from strongly agree to strongly disagree)
Statement: The course met my needs (from strongly agree to strongly disagree)
Statement: The topics covered in the course were relevant (strongly agree to strongly disagree)
Statement: The exercises in the e-learning were clearly explained (strongly agree to strongly disagree)
Statement: The instructions for the questions were clear (strongly agree to strongly disagree)
