During this meeting, the Pathway to Teaching Identities partners will test the functionality of the interpersonal skills knowledge assessment tool as end-users and provide feedback for any needed improvements. This Interpersonal Skills Self-Assessment Tool in adult education combines a knowledge test, a feedback section, and an information based assessment which is offered via our website. Access to the assessment tool required the user to register and logged-in as a means to strengthen digital skills through adult education.
The assessment tool aims to facilitate both adult educators and learners to assess their interpersonal skills before taking a part in our training programme on how interpersonal skills development can be integrated in adult education. During training design, the results of the assessment helps us to consider adult learners' learning needs, characteristics, social barriers and cultural differences which often affect the teaching and training process when an adult educator is working with a diverse group of adult learners.
The interface and functions of the Interpersonal Skills Self-Assessment Tool has undergone a usability test; a structured approach that took pilot-testing users through an assessment survey to answer questions on interpersonal skills. The usability test was a specific and a very important step during the programming and formative evaluation process. Hence, this meeting serves as the final evaluation to fine-turn the assessment tool.
