SESSION INFORMATION

Ashley Castleberry, PharmD, MEd

Often the learning process is thought to occur before exams but learning can also happen during and after exams when reviews are carefully designed. This session will explore the features ExamSoft offers to review exams along with a process for taking an "Exam Autopsy" on students performance. Using ExamSoft mapping and reporting features, students receive detailed feedback on their performance and performance an autopsy of their exams to figure out what went wrong and develop a plan for success before the next exam.

SESSION INFORMATION

ExamSoft Goes to Nursing School

Christina Barker, BSN, RN

A walk through the journey of implementing ExamSoft into a baccalaureate nursing program. From the first steps of getting faculty ready for computer based testing to preparing students for the exam we have seen "almost" everything and survived. This presentation will share some of the lessons we have learned and ways to avoid problems moving forward.

Embedded assessment, and the ability to "tag" exam items to learning objectives, has become the standard for the reporting of student learning. On top of these use-cases, and in order to satisfy accreditation requirements and appropriately map the curriculum, ExamSoft’s category feature can be used to map assessment items to the appropriate learning objective for each lesson, as well as accreditation standards. Mapping assessment items with the objectives and instructional method allows faculty and support staff to link these items back to the course objectives, course goals, program goals, and ultimately the school mission. This mapping effort has proven to successfully ease accreditation visits, and has proved to be a vital tool in providing accrediting bodies with evidence on how a program has "closed the loop" from the beginning of the program to the end of each course assessment. Having the ability to show proof of these results was a well-received effort for a recent accreditation visit, and has prompted growth of this mapping effort throughout the curriculum. This presentation addresses the process of satisfying accreditation requirements through the appropriate use of ExamSoft’s tagging and reporting capabilities.

Dan holds a Master of Science in Technology Enhanced Learning and a Bachelor of Science in Adolescent/Young Adult Education from the University of Dayton.
