Practice, Review, Assess, and Score!
The Challenger learning methodology is elegantly designed to promote the highest level of retention possible. Questions are written by clinical experts to emulate clinical examination standards and to enhance knowledge of current best practices. Whether you are seeking to acquire continuing medical education credits, preparing for an examination or re-affirming your knowledge, our review and testing structure will help.
Our three step - Practice, Review, Assess - progression incorporates a proven educational regime called programmed learning. At the start of each topic chapter, three tabs are displayed. Each tab's content is formatted for a specific function and use. You can toggle from tab to tab as you wish, allowing for a more personalized flow of study.
The "Practice" tab - The test run. Answer each question in a section and receive pop up feedback and remediation. Limited tries keep the session honest. Correct and incorrect indicators appear next to your selected answers. All answers are revealed when all tries are exhausted.
The "Review" tab - The study guide. The Review section presents the questions in the order seen in the Practice section, but with all answers and remediation displayed. Once your review is finished, you may either re-enter the Practice section or proceed to the Assessment.
The "Assessment" - The scored test. One or more assessments will be available for each topic. Questions seen in the Practice view will display in random order. At the end of each assessment your responses are scored and a detailed breakdown displayed.
The scoring report indicates correct answers and incorrect answers given for each question. These scores, if the required score is met, can be sent to Challenger Corporation for fast CME certificate fulfillment.
Fast Navigation in an Interactive Environment
The Challenger Interactive Viewer (CIV) environment integrates all content and dynamic testing functionality in a clear, point-and-learn format. The review progression is designed to allow quick navigation while providing a step-by-step structure to enhance learning and retention. Read, view, absorb, and retain material at your own pace.
Unlike most clinical review software programs where navigation is hard to use or confusing, navigating through Challenger courses, sections, and topics is a breeze thanks to Challenger's Interactive Viewer (CIV). Quickly jump to your area of interest, topic to sub-topic, in a straightforward outline form.
Find what you need, fast. The CIV is graphically laid out to provide large, on-screen selections for fast, easy navigation. Entry into each content section opens the Interactive Viewer Window where content is displayed. Topics list neatly down one side. Want to switch topics? Just click the topic title in the list. Practice, Review and Assessment tabs line the top of the window for multiple content review options. To return to the main table of contents, simply close the window or select the central home button.
Study At Your Own Pace
Keep time requirements under your control. Save features capture your scores from wherever you are in the course. Work in one topic in the morning, then jump to something completely different in the afternoon. You're not locked into any enforced content order, remote schedule, or lecture circuit with Challenger products, so your valuable review time is used at your discretion.
Built-in Flexibility - Two Points of Access
Don't have time to drive or fly to that CME seminar? Have it come to you. When you purchase any Challenger program, you will receive a CD-ROM and an instructional help guide. You will also be automatically set up in our Challenger Online Learning Portal, so you can access your course material via the web from any computer with an Internet connection. Review, study and take assessments online just as if you were at home. This convenience is crucial, given time constraints shouldered by today's clinical professionals.
Quick and Easy CME Fulfillment - For FREE
Obtaining your CME certificates has never been easier. You can request CME credits any time upon completion of the course. Challenger provides multiple score submission options and simple-to-follow instructions. Just mail or fax your printed scores or submit them directly via your online Challenger account.
