Faculty from the Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences strategically mapped a major science course to program outcomes and course objectives to offer meaningful S&O reports after course exams. A process was developed to (1) assist students with interpreting the results and (2) make connections between their areas of weakness with recommended study habits for the course. This session will highlight the process behind mapping categories to guide student analysis of ExamSoft's Strengths and Opportunities Report to inform study approaches. Participants will be able to explain opportunities and challenges to support student use of the S&O Report, including processes for quality exam category mapping and guiding student analysis of the report to support learning.
