Using ExamSoft Data for Item Revision and Faculty Development - 08.31.17

July 6, 2017 Jacob Catalano
Upcoming Webinar
 
Date/Time: Thursday, August 31, 3:00pm - 4:00pm ET
Speakers: Misty Stutz, Associate Professor and Assistant Dean/Chair of Clinical and Administrative Sciences, and Kimberly Daugherty, Professor and Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs and Assessment, Sullivan College of Pharmacy
 

Strong assessments begin with solid exam items. However, many faculty members struggle with writing questions, or even knowing if their questions are indeed valid. At Sullivan University College of Pharmacy, didactic examinations are created and delivered by utilizing an embedded-assessment software. By using ExamSoft to “tag” all exam questions with the faculty writer’s name, the programmatic outcome being tested, and the topic being covered, outcomes data can be harvested post-exam on how all items are performing within each of these categories. In an effort to drive item writing and revision skills, question analytics (including point biserial and item level of difficulty) are then provided to faculty members along with recommendations for improvement.
