"What's in it for me?" said the Student, Faculty, and Curriculum

"What's in it for me?" said the Student, Faculty, and Curriculum

Recently, Ashley Castleberry, Director of Assessment for the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences College of Pharmacy, discussed how students, faculty, and curriculum can benefit from utilizing ExamSoft's reporting and assessment capabilities.

The key takeaways from the presentation include:

  1. By aggregating question statistics, faculty are given the flexibility to change teaching strategies and make curriculum adjustments based on how students perform.

  2. Having all course and curriculum assessment data in a single platform can help faculty to collaborate on integrated courses, exam blueprinting, question design, and question performance.

  3. Student peer reviews are a great tactic to help enhance student learning through knowledge diffusion, facilitating metacognition, and promoting lifelong learning overall.

When investing in new technology, everyone asks: "What's in it for me?". This session will highlight the benefits of ExamSoft reporting and assessment capabilities from the student view as well as the faculty view. Additionally, comprehensive longitudinal data from courses and entire programs will be presented to demonstrate the value of advanced assessment methods using ExamSoft across a curriculum for accreditation purposes. Example student report cards and exam reports will be shared as well as some additional features that you might not know you have at your fingertips.

“Students really appreciate these report cards and are usually beating down my door to release their performance data back to them—this helps them understand what areas they are doing well in and where they need improve."
