CIW Pre-Assessment

We offer an online pre-assessment test that mirrors the number of questions and distribution of skills objectives on the high-stakes CIW Web Foundations Associate certification exam. …Read More

The CIW Pre-Assessment helps students determine their existing skill levels and their readiness to take the CIW Web Foundations Associate training courses. It also helps identify knowledge areas in which students need to focus their studies in order to pass the certification exam. The CIW Pre-Assessment allows students to:

  • Practice time management, because the test's time limit mirrors the certification exam's time limit
  • Exit the test at any time (they must start over on their next attempt)
  • Skip a question, flag it for review and return to it later
  • Review all answers before getting the final score
  • See which questions they missed, with correct answers and explanations
  • Repeat the test as many times as needed within the subscription period
  • See their scores in My Progress at the top of the page

CIW Video Clips

Video clips provide supplementary instruction in a multimedia format, and enhance the CIW coursebook narrative and labs. View Samples:

CIW Course Mastery

CIW Course Mastery is an online tool that delivers CIW course review questions. This tool is based on research in learning and memory, and it delivers an accelerated teaching solution that reduces training time and boosts retention of material in the learner's memory to provide 100-percent mastery of all content.…Read More

Students can use CIW Course Mastery after each lesson to review the material, and identify the concepts that they understand and those that they still need to learn. For each question, Course Mastery asks students to indicate their level of confidence in their answer. Course Mastery creates an adaptive, personalized learning plan and cycles the student through a process of test-learn-retest until the student achieves mastery of the material.

CIW Lesson Quizzes

CIW Lesson Quizzes test a student's understanding of topics covered in each lesson within each course. These short, multiple-choice quizzes provide instructors with a resource for formative assessment and grading. CIW Lesson Quizzes are available on CIW Online, and can be found on each of the lesson pages in the Online Resources.…Read More

Each quiz consists of 20 questions randomly selected from the pool of Course Mastery questions. They are similar to CIW Practice Exams, but questions are based on the lesson content instead of the exam objectives.

Lesson Quizzes enable instructors to grade their students' progress for each lesson. Whereas Course Mastery shows only a status of complete or incomplete in the gradebook, instructors can record a grade for each lesson quiz.

CIW Online Excercises

CIW Online Exercises review knowledge of the topics presented in the course and help reinforce learning. The Exercises are presented in a variety of formats including flash cards, matching exercises, true-false questions, crossword puzzles and fill-in-the-blank exercises.
