Part of Educational Technologies Week

Date: Friday, March 16, 1:00-2:00 pm

Workshop description

In this session, we will provide an overview of the use of the ExamSoft platform in the School of Pharmacy. The software is used for creation of assessments (including creating question banks and tagging questions to learning outcomes), secure offline electronic test administration, and provision of detailed performance reports to students and faculty. It can also be used for curricular mapping and programmatic assessment.

Learning Outcomes: After the session, participants will be able to:

  • describe the process of creating assessments using ExamSoft
  • Discuss administration of secure, electronic tests using Examplify (student portal for ExamSoft)
  • Describe reports that can be generated for students and faculty through ExamSoft, and how these can be used for a variety of purposes, such as remediation, curricular mapping, and faculty development
  • Identify challenges and “lessons learned” with ExamSoft
