Using ExamSoft Data to Prepare for and Ease the Accreditation Process
Recently, Dr. Kimberly Daugherty, Dr. Ashley Castleberry, and Dr. Leah Simpson, discussed how educators can use ExamSoft’s assessment data to document students’ master of accreditation standards in their webinar, “Using ExamSoft Data to Prepare for and Ease the Accreditation Process.”
The key takeaways from the presentation include:
1. ExamSoft’s longitudinal reports fit the autonomy support model by allowing educators to feed up, feed back, and feed forward to help students improve.
2. End-of-exam reports provide students with insight into learning patterns that they cannot get from the simple release of a score.
3. When reviewing longitudinal assessment reports, noting both student and course performance allows for the most effective improvements to be made to ensure learning success.
The presentation gives insight into using ExamSoft’s in-depth data to deliver feedback and engage students in learning improvement with longitudinal reporting. Also, specific steps toward using feedback to foster student autonomy are given to help educators provided an engaging learning environment.
"In order for students to be motivated, they should feel connected, competent, and as though the have a choice in the learning process.”
