In this blog, Dan Richards tells a story of one of his most memorable experiences while traveling to conduct authoring tool training. This story doubles as a great example of how assessments can be used as motivators for students, even when they don't realize it.

Let’s face it. Sometimes the programs we use at work can be challenging. Often, it is an employee’s knowledge of these programs that can make or break efficiency.
