Using ExamSoft Data for Item Revision and Faculty Development
Recently, Dr. Misty Stutz and Dr. Kimberly Daugherty, from Sullivan College of Pharmacy, show how 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.
The key takeaways from the presentation include:
1. Faculty scorecards can be used to help faculty identify how their item writing compares to their peers.
2. A curriculum map should coincide with ExamSoft item mapping for optimal course alignment
3. Faculty report cards can be interpreted, organized, and presented in different ways.
"I needed a way to objectively measure the effectiveness of teaching in the classroom. Examsoft reports provided the objective data that we used for our faculty assessment.”
