Once an instructional element is completed, a content alignment is competed to verify that the materials actually support the intended objectives.
This insures that nothing has been overlooked and that the importance of each objective has been accounted for and critical items have received more emphasis.
This is a partial example of a content alignment for a short training course.
Survey Assessment Analysis
Surveys are a commonly used tool to collect data. Unfortunately, surveys are often created quickly and have unintended design flaws that are discovered after the survey is complete. Some common examples are:
Unintended frame errors (asking participants for information that they do not have).
Inadequate sampling methods
This is an example of a such a survey. Depending on the purpose and consequences of the survey results, the information may only be useful as a general impression. In this example, the flaws were noted and a thematic analysis was used to summarize the open ended comments.
