Upcoming Webinar
 
Date/Time: Wednesday, November 1, 12:00pm - 1:00pm ET
Speakers: Dan Thompson, Manager of Instructional Design and Educational Technology, Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences
 

Exam statistics are far more than an evaluation of student knowledge and retention. Assessment data provide limitless insights into curricular structure, our performance as instructors, and teaching methods. While there is great utility in reviewing how we can improve our teaching and assessment methods, we are selling ourselves short as professionals if we stop there. The robust statistics that can be extracted from student assessment can also be used for scholarly research projects and to prove our successes in the classroom. This presentation will address the process of utilizing ExamSoft categorization techniques to both harness useful exam statistics and then apply them in data-driven research projects—creating scholarly activities to build a professional portfolio and prepare for promotion and tenure.
