- The biggest challenge in any facilitated learning is the accurate evaluation of learning. The teaching-learning process is never complete without an evaluation
- The next challenge is project management, in terms of the volume of content involved and the extensive number of users
- Another big challenge is the quality of the content in terms of subject accuracy and syntax
Challenges- Assessment of learning through questionnaire (assessment writing) in the healthcare domain
- Questionnaires tend to evaluate theoretical learning, but healthcare learning is clinical-based
- Questionnaires are based on average learners, they do not take into consideration, the students who are fast or slow learners
- Questionnaires have limited scope for evaluation of scientific concepts which are multi-faceted and complex
- Questionnaires have limited scope of evaluation when it comes to levels of cognition in a teaching-learning process
- Questionnaires do not facilitate critical-thinking in the test-taker
