What is the Profiling activity?
Thematic positioning quiz
Profiling aims to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the learner on the topic of the training. A personalized training path can be created based on the learner's responses to a series of weighted questions.
Each question offers up to three weighted responses, each associated with a defined profile. At the end of the activity, an algorithm defines a main profile for the learner (the profile with the most points) and already completed training activities can be proposed again.
Profiling is part of the Engage phase of the ELPA learning cycle. It finds its place at the beginning of the course and aims to personalize the training of the learner according to his initial knowledge.
