Continued Examsoft Rollout for Fall ‘15 Courses

Following the initial roll out of Examsoft earlier this year, the computer-based testing platform has been implemented in the Fall 2015 semester for third year Radiologic Sciences courses, Physician Assistants’ incoming didactic courses, and select PharmD program courses. SofTest exam administration is still being utilized in PA clinical year coursework. Based on feedback from the pilot period’s cohort, the Office of Assessment provided student training sessions for the didactic PA students and incoming professional Radiologic Sciences students during their respective program orientations. A separate training opportunity was offered to students of the two PHR 4109 sections utilizing SofTest. Mock exam(s) were administered to familiarize students with SofTest’s interface, testing protocol, and to identify any machines/technical issues which may be preventable in future testing environments. Softest exam administrations are already underway for the Fall 2015 semester and its focus remains on faculty training and student engagement.
