What are practical assessments?

Practical assessments are a training course lesson type that's all about hands-on training and experience for your team members, which goes beyond traditional teaching methods. With immediate feedback and opportunities for improvement getting shared by the assessor, team members can track their progress toward mastery of the subject matter.

This lesson type is ideal for teaching a range of skills, from customer service to safety checks, and more to provide demonstration and a practical learning experience.

Conducting practical assessments for team members requires the "Training: Administration" permission.
