ExamSoft has long been the go-to platform for educators looking for a secure testing environment and assessment reporting tool. But what about the need to increase communication among faculty, staff, administration, students, and even parents? With so many individuals (and moving parts) involved in the teaching and learning process, the ability to quickly and accurately communicate exam information is paramount to student success. ExamSoft can be used as a secure form of mass communication to get the necessary information to the appropriate people to support student learning as it as happening, not after it is too late. This presentation illustrates how to create an environment in ExamSoft that allows for the constant and instantaneous flow of student assessment performance data within an institution and at home. With this process, immediate positive reinforcement and/or remediation can be implemented to create a proactive learning atmosphere for students that will ultimately lead to improved outcomes.
