SESSION INFORMATION

Robert Casanova M.D.

Using ExamSoft rubrics to provide comprehensive and cohesive grading for all students on multiple campuses. We went from grading OSCEs on paper and having no control over exam results and providing very little feedback for the exam takers. We implemented ExamSoft Rubrics on one campus and then rolled out to our two other campuses. All results are now centralized and exam takers now have comprehensive feedback for each OSCE. We can also develop a longitudinal progression of each student as now our 1st year medical students also use rubrics with all of their OSCEs.

Associate Dean and Associate Professor

Texas Woman's University College of Nursing


Ainslie Nibert is a nationally-recognized expert in nursing curriculum, testing and measurement who has led teams for developing curriculum, standardized exams, online remediation content, and licensure/certification exam preparation materials supported by peer-reviewed, published reports of evidence-based outcome achievement for academic nursing and allied health programs. She currently administers the academic nursing programs at the Houston campus of one of the largest nursing schools in the nation, with enrollments exceeding 3,000 students across multiple undergraduate and graduate tracks. Dr. Nibert is an academic and corporate consultant, leading strategic program development for several nursing academic and clinical practice organizations. 

In this session, faculty will learn how to focus all aspects of their active classrooms on learning-focused experiences that encourage NCLEX-RN® readiness from students’ very first exposures to the nursing curriculum. Faculty will discover how they can realize improved student outcomes by drafting lesson plans that reflect critical thinking applications, and foster students’ abilities to connect what happens in the clinical area with topics discussed in the classroom. Faculty’s use of standardized exam reports that identify strengths and weaknesses in student performance coupled with the use of sound test item writing that produces high-quality exams will chart the path to students’ success on the NCLEX-RN®.

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.
