Pre-test Post-test by any other name would smell so sweet


Hello everyone,

I would like to recommend a pre-test/post-test to assist with evaluation of a learning program, but would love a 'tricky' new name, as 'Pre-test/Post-test' sounds pretty boring. Any suggestions?

This is how it works... 
At the start of the day, participants will record their answers to a series of multiple choice questions in column A, then as they progress through the training, if they hear/learn something and wish to change their answer, they will record their new answer in column B. The Facilitator collects the pre-test/post-test which will give some indication of the change in knowledge as a result of the learning event. As mentioned previously, this is only one aspect of evaluation - I just need your creativity to help me sell it!!

Looking forward to your ideas - thank you!

  1. Subject area

    Hi Dihi

    It would help if we knew the subject area as that is what would determine the pre and post course evaluation.


  2. Subject area

    Hi Steve, thanks for your reply! There is no specific subject area – I just want a name for pre-test/post-tests generally. A couple of suggestions along the lines of 'WILT' are 'Wisdom' or 'WINK' (What I now know) tests.
