Transitioning Assessment Reporting to the Nuventive Improvement Platform
March 16th, 2021
Transitioning to a new assessment reporting system brings challenges and opportunities. In 2019, A&M-Commerce underwent an exploratory process of collaborating with campus assessment partners to research and select an online assessment tool for use in collection of annual outcomes assessment reporting. After selecting the Nuventive Improvement Platform, the IER team worked closely with Nuventive to configure their assessment solution into a platform that would increase the efficiency of annual reporting while also introducing an enhanced element of quality review. Key features of the improved process included consolidation of assessment plan and results entry, addition of an electronic review and approval process, use of a standardized rubric to structure feedback provided, and the creation of reports to actively monitor report submission and approval status. After one cycle of implementation, immediate gains in efficiency were noted at A&M-Commerce, and additional opportunities to use the platform to address quality improvement can be identified.
