Confidence-Based Learning (CBL) is designed to ensure that learning actually takes place and mastery is achieved. It is much more than simply delivering content to employees. CBL ensures learning by ascertaining precisely what people know and what they don’t know without guesswork and doubt skewing the results. Then, the CBL System rapidly remediates learners’ gaps in knowledge and confidence.

Determining what people need to learn starts by understanding what ignorance, doubts and misinformation exist within learners. Unlike traditional learning methodologies that measure only how many questions someone answers correctly, CBL’s assessment methodology differentiates

  • Correct answers that are answered with confidence, indicating competency;
  • Correct answers that are answered with doubt;
  • Correct answers that are total guesses, equivalent to no knowledge;
  • Incorrect answers that are answered with confidence, indicating misinformation.

Distinguishing between a person guessing correctly and one who answers correctly with confidence can have a direct impact on the bottom line. The Confidence-Based Assessment™ can capture and validate knowledge confidence because of the unique structure of its multiple-choice questions and detailed analysis.

Upon completion of an assessment, CBL closes knowledge gaps at the moment users are most inclined to learn – just after being evaluated and shown their personal levels of misinformation and doubt.

Knowledge Factor, the leader in Confidence-Based Learning, will be featured at the upcoming Sharing@LearnShare conference addressing the best practice applications of CBL. This issue is one of the many critical training issues to be addressed at the Sharing@LearnShare conference in Las Vegas on March 1-2. To learn more and register, Visit LearnShare's website here.
