Knowledge Factor, the leader in Confidence-Based Learning, today announced that it is has been tapped by the New England Organ Bank (NEOB) to conduct training for all NEOB tissue personnel on the recovery and screening requirements for tissue donated for transplantation. Knowledge Factor will apply its patented learning methodology to repurpose NEOB’s training content and activities to track, document and shorten the time to mastery for new and existing staff.
“The extensive regulatory issues surrounding the screening process for tissue donors makes it important for our employees to be knowledgeable and confident in their implementation,” said Diana Buck, Director of Tissue Operations of New England Organ Bank. “Knowledge Factor’s CBL System™ is the first training product we have found that accurately validates both knowledge and confidence. The ability to document when people are trained, and giving them a faster path to mastery, may be the biggest paybacks for this program.”
Knowledge Factor’s learning program is based on an innovative learning methodology called Confidence-Based Learning (CBL). CBL measures and nurtures both knowledge and confidence. The CBL System is unique in its ability to differentiate between:
- Mastery - correct and confident knowledge
- Doubt – correct knowledge that is believed without full confidence
- Guesswork – lucky guessing that is not accompanied by any competence
- Ignorance – no knowledge.
CBL can capture and validate knowledge confidence because of the unique structure of the assessments it uses as the basis for its learning process.
This patented assessment simultaneously measures the relationship between confidence and correctness. Mastery is accurately and consistently identified, knowledge gaps are clearly revealed, and guessing is eliminated because it is not rewarded as it is in conventional assessments and certifications.
“NEOB’s decision to use CBL validates what more and more organizations are wanting to do – certify that their training is effective by validating that learning actually takes place,” said Mark Dreher, Knowledge Factor’s Chief Executive Officer. “The CBL System is quickly gaining converts in healthcare because of its unique ability to develop and validate competency in arenas where the consequences of mistakes are significant.”
Founded in 2000, the Company has gained national acclaim for its unique ability to ensure that learning occurs as an outcome of training. Knowledge Factor is the leader in Confidence-Based Learning and owner of a patented and effective methodology it calls Confidence-Based Assessment™, or CBA™, which is the first product to accurately measure both knowledge and confidence and removes guesswork from training. The Company's CBL System measures competency, validates learning and provides rapid and targeted learning solutions to organizations and individuals.
