Telling your Assessment Story with ExamSoft Data
Recently, Dr. Ashley Castleberry, Director of Assessment, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, College of Pharmacy explores ways to use ExamSoft data to tell your assessment story of achieving learning outcomes, developing faculty, and implementing successful QA/QI processes.
The key takeaways from the presentation include:
1. Achievement of student learning outcomes at multiple levels; student, course, cohort, and curriculum. Longitudinal data created from ExamSoft reporting shows the changes in student success giving faculty the necessary information to make course and curriculum adjustments
2. Successful QA/QI processes involves making adjustments to curriculum maps in order to achieve desired student learning outcomes. A curriculum map should coincide with ExamSoft item mapping for optimal course alignment
3. Faculty development depends on assessment evidence associated with the item writing, item content, item stats interpretation, curriculum map alignment, and teaching methods. This kind of development requires meaningful mapping and recording of assessment data.
"The accreditors want to know that you are teaching what you say you are teaching. We can use ExamSoft software data to show what we are teaching and how the students are performing according to the curriculum map.”
