A conversation on the value of asking good questions

I enjoyed  a blog post by Andy Klee of  Klee Associates about a  recent conversation he’d had with our own John Kleeman, Questionmark’s chairman. Klee, whose organization provides JD Edwards and SAP training and consulting, showed a great deal of interest in how good questions and tests can improve learning outcomes.

Click here to follow their wide-ranging discussion, which covers such topics as the challenge of creating high-quality test questions, the correlation between performance on certification exams and  future job performance, and trends in exam design and administration.

It’s great to see more and more people recognizing that asking questions adds value to learning. If you would like to read more on this subject, check out this paper by Dr Will Thalheimer of Work-Learning Research: The Learning Benefits of Questions.
