Great course, badly designed quiz

Useful course and introduction to ACES

Overall good course, however would of been great to see qui answers for learning

It was exactly the same as a course I did recently, and was extremely difficult to navigate, from logging in, creating an account (20 mins+), to the glitchy links which meant I actually did the course twice. Saying that it is an extremely important course, which anyone working with children should have to complete, and if I hadn't already seen it, I would find it very useful. The quiz at the end is ridiculous though, as the questions are very vague, and the answers are also vague. having done the course three times in quick succession I only managed to get 80%

very hard to register

very beneficial to me

Content good. Quiz answers were too ambiguous.

It would be nice to see which answers I got wrong

great resource and simple information

I didn't think it was relevant to my work.

Very informative and interesting

A useful and informative course that offers expert knowledge. Although the course was easy enough to follow there were some navigation issues and the quiz asked questions on areas that had not been explored in the course, which on a positive note made you think on your feet, however maybe for newer learners may impact on them passing or failing.

Presentation was excellent. Questions not very clear and although relevant, took away from what I had gained in the information provided.
