SJU Faculty Technology Forum

The Office of Assessment will be presenting on the college’s IPE efforts utilizing ExamSoft this Monday, October 23rd at the SJU Faculty Tech Forum. The SJU Tech Forum is an annual opportunity for stakeholders at SJU to take a look at technologies that faculty are currently using in their classes and colleges. The forum is a wonderful opportunity for us to highlight some of what we do in terms of assessment and technology, and we look forward to sharing our future plans for ExamSoft and IPE. This presentation will particularly focus on how we are using computer-based testing software to measure, track and report our data, ultimately leading toward greater tracking of programmatic goals and outcomes.

Office of Assessment visits Examsoft’s Assessment on Tour

The College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences has been utilizing the ExamSoft platform since January 2015 and has seen its use expand greatly across the College’s four programs- Pharmacy, Physician Assistant, Radiologic Sciences, and Clinical Lab Sciences. As it is adopted by more faculty and used in other courses, the Office of Assessment (OA) continues to immerse itself in computer-based testing while also adopting our own best practices to introduce initiatives that suit the unique needs of our student and faculty users.

ExamSoft recently visited New York City to host its Assessment On Tour (AOT) series and provided insightful presentations from other schools utilizing the platform. Soon after Carla Hernandez, a member of the College’s Office of Assessment, was invited to speak at October 2017’s AOT at the University of North Carolina- Charlotte campus. Carla shared St. John’s University’s College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences’ experience with ExamSoft over the last 2 ½ years. She specifically presented the benefits of analyzing student assessment data through ExamSoft’s reporting tools. The OA aims to continue working with all stakeholders to improve the long-term rollout of ExamSoft at the College.
