Using Qualtrics for Assessment
For programs, faculty, and staff needing to collect assessment data outside of the classroom, the Qualtrics survey system provides a diverse set of tools for programs to collect assessment data from on and off-campus raters. This workshop will cover tips and tricks to make Qualtrics useful for assessment.
Canvas has immense capabilities that can reduce the amount of time spent on the process of assessment. The Office of Assessment can help programs implement these new tools and design custom reports that meet the program’s needs. The custom reports works to enhance the data and act as an approachable deliverable to departments, faculty and programs.
An earlier post presented a conceptual overview of using Canvas Outcomes scores in PowerBI. Today, we are presenting a four-part, step-by-step walkthrough detailing how to create a direct assessment dashboard/report in PowerBI. These videos present a variety of options for each step and are meant to be adapted to fit each user’s needs.
The first video in the series covers the creation of the Fact Table using outcomes data exported from Canvas.
