Why take a historical quiz

Historical knowledge is often taken for granted in the workplace, but it’s important that your workers have at least a basic understanding of historical events and figures. Not only can this help them to contextualize their work and understand the origins of certain business practices, but it can also help them to be more critical consumers. A recent study by the American Council on Education showed that students who score high in history courses are more likely to remain in college and complete a degree. In addition, they are also more likely to perform better in other courses and have a greater appreciation for other cultures. It’s for these reasons that we’ve put together this free, editable quiz on historical figures and events. With questions on everything from the American Revolution to the Napoleonic Wars, your workers can brush up on their knowledge of history – and maybe even learn something new.

Deploy a historical quiz to your team

With this historical quiz, you can identify the gaps in your team's knowledge of historical events and close these knowledge gaps so your team can easily remember these important moments in history. This knowledge is critical for improving your team's understanding of the world around them and for reinforcing your organization's values. With regular quizzes, your team will be more confident with their understanding of historical events and how they've shaped the world we live in today. Plus, you'll also get access to your team's results so you can understand individual workers' knowledge gaps, as well as overall performance once the quiz is complete. For teams that require more regular refresher training, you'll also have the option to deliver the historical quiz to your learners in bite-sized chunks, at regular intervals. This allows your team to reinforce their knowledge at their own pace, making them more likely to recall and implement what they learned sooner than if they were to have completed a one-off training program.
