Proof of learning

All ProTrainings courses confirm student comprehension in two ways. The first is through the pre-test. Students are asked pre-test questions after each group of videos to confirm understanding of the major points within those videos.

After the training section, students are asked to take a final test. They must score an 80% or better to pass. The student is able to take the test again if they are not successful on the first attempt, and each test is recorded and viewable through the teacher dashboard. The test is comprised of multiple choice, scenario-based questions.
