Faculty's Secret Weapon!
Online Advantage - Academic Version
The academic version provides a convenient and affordable method for academic programs to administer comprehensive examinations to their graduating students. The product provides an ideal tool for both individual student and academic program assessment.
Academic programs can purchase a select number of access codes based on the number of students using the comprehensive examination. The access codes are institution specific and allow summary data to be generated for each individual student and the collective academic program. Students are unable to purchase access codes, thereby limiting the probability of item exposure prior to formal testing by the academic program.
The data is analyzed in five system specific and five content outline areas. The summary data includes a comparison of your program’s performance to the aggregate data gathered from all other students throughout the country that have taken the same examination.
Students are able to access the performance analysis section of their examination for a 60-day period after taking the examination. This time period allows students to use their identified strengths and weaknesses to develop an individual remedial plan to improve examination performance. Students will not be able to access other students’ scores nor will they be able to access academic program summary data.
Enlightening, discerning, and instructive.
