What are assessments?

Assessments are course activities that are designed to test your learners' comprehension of a given topic. Unlike lessons, assessments do not include any general learning slides. Instead, you'll be able to test your learners' knowledge with a series of questions.

If you wish, you can set a minimum pass score. This allows you to determine what score a learner must reach in order to pass the assessment or continue their course.
