I am starting the process of setting up modules in Haiku. I am planning to create courses for school counselors and I set out to create my first assessment. Haiku offers multiple ways to create assessments in their CMS platform. You have the following options to choose from:
For my first assessment, I needed to gather information from my students that would drive my course. I took questions from the ASCA School Counseling Program Assessment. School counselors audit their school counseling program annually with this assessment. To get a glimpse of where my students are in their school counseling program I created 11 questions.
I choose to use the Multiple Choice option in Haiku. I wanted to gather the data into one place and thought that this would give me an overview of where the students were in their own program. I would use this data to drive instruction. What would I need to add or what did they already know that I didn’t need to create in the modules.
I found that the Multiple Choice option did not offer the flexibility I would like to have in my assessment. With my assessment there is no right or wrong answer. Haiku forced me to have an answer. I did play around a little more and found you could mix questions such as asking multiple choice and short answer. With what I need for this first assessment I probably would not use Haiku’s built in assessments. I would import my own assessment possibly through Google Forms to get the flexibility I need.
Here is a look at my first assessment in Haiku:
