A novel approach to the use of pre- and post-testing was used to take the element of guessing at answers to test questions out of this method to better quantifying knowledge gained by participants in a workshop. The approach showed a 10% increase in knowledge gained by participants over the traditional method of tallying pre-/post-test. The method also provides instructor feedback to improve the workshop content and allow him or her to better gauge the time needed for program components, measure confidence in answers, and identify where incorrect answers are actually thought to be correct by participants.
