Psychometrics 201: Putting assessment data into action

Recently, Dan Thompson, Sr. Manager of Education and Assessment, at ExamSoft, discussed some tips about item analysis and the different ways your data can be utilized within ExamSoft.

The key takeaways from the presentation include:

  1. Provide meaningful feedback to students for self-assessment.

  2. Evaluate effectiveness of teaching methods.

  3. Apply use of exam data for student remediation.

At the conclusion of each exam, a wealth of student assessment data is immediately available to faculty. The short term value of this data is evident - evaluate individual question performance. However, that’s only the beginning. Assessment data provides opportunities for in-depth analysis on course, curricular, and instructional method performance. Furthermore, specific performance data can be distributed to students to drive their self-assessment and focused study plans. This presentation addresses the process of using assessment data to make tangible changes to improve instructional and student outcomes.

If we're not doing this to improve student outcomes we're probably in the classroom for the wrong reasons. We should always be trying to help students prepare for their next steps—and exam question data can help tremendously with this." - Dan Thompson M.Ed.
