Post-pre assessment

Wikis > Post-pre assessment

Post-pre assessment is a retrospective approach to measuring client change. Participants are asked to use their current frame of reference to create a common measuring stick for assessing their competence before and after a workshop. For example, participants in a workshop on how to understand and use labour market information might be asked: “Knowing what you know now about using labour market information for career decision making or job search, rate yourself before the workshop and rate yourself now.”
