ID Recruitment Test: Structuring Skills
The source material that instructional designers receive from subject matter experts (SME) is organized and written from the perspective of an expert, which will not be easily understood by novice learners. As an instructional designer, you will be expected to rewrite and reorganize this content so that the target learners easily understand it. Not just rewriting and rephrasing, you will also need to visualize a lot of abstract content. Therefore, instructional designers must possess the skills to structure, organize and visualize content.
What’s in it for me?
You can take this instructional design test to assess your structuring and visualizing skills. This will help you identify how good you are in this area, and if needed take up a course before you appear for a written test or a job interview.
How is the assessment designed?
The complete ID Recruitment Test has a total of four parts. Each part tests for a specific competency as described below. This part focuses on the ability to structure and visualize information. The assessment is timed, and you will receive a score at the end of the assessment.
Keeping in mind the complexities of the work-place scenario, the options are not designed to be “black and white”. The difference between various options to a question is minimal, and borders on “gray”. It is the ability to recognize this minor distinction that sets apart a good and intuitive instructional designer from the rest. Making the options very unique will dilute the test, and defeat the very purpose of the test – for it will then not mimic the real-life scenario.
A score above 60% indicates that you have a good ability to structure and visualize complex information. If you get a score less than 60%, get in touch with us for advise on which courses will help you bridge the gap.
