    BENEFITS:

Incoming Assessment to baseline knowledge. It is important for students to get feedback on how much they have
learned during the WorkshopPLUS course. To accomplish that end, the Incoming Assessment measures what students
know at the beginning of the course. This 25-question assessment was developed by a team of subject matter experts at
Microsoft.

Outgoing Assessment to measure knowledge transfer. Students like to know how much they learned as a result of the
training. At the end of the WorkshopPLUS course, students compare their Incoming and Outgoing results. In addition,
the instructor reviews the questions and discusses the answers in detail to ensure that students understand the
concepts. (Note: Individual results of the Incoming and Outgoing Assessment are not provided to management.)

Action Planning Exercises to take workshop-acquired knowledge and apply them to the workplace. Applying new
knowledge to the real world is key to getting the most value out of your training budget. The purpose of the Action
Planning Exercises is to identify key problems or proactive opportunities in your workplace — and then to use the skills
learned in this course to develop real-world action plans.
