EvalTools® LMS centers around the planning-teaching-assessment cycle for any given course. EvalTools® embeds assessment in teaching and learning activities right from the beginning. Some features pertaining to planning-teaching-assessment are highlighted as follows
EvalTools® provides consistent interfaces to capture the learning plan and activities for the semester. More than a class syllabus, the learning plan also allows you to enter course outcomes and assessment anchors as well as typical information such as course descriptions, course outlines, textbooks, grading policies, etc. Material entered here is available to students, teachers, principals or the curriculum director to review throughout the semester. Additionally, course outcomes entered here will be used across all the modules for outcomes assessment.
FCAR is a unique feature of EvalTools®. The FCAR gives you a chance to look at your teaching at the end of the semester to evaluate performance.
With the FCAR you can review action items that pertained to your course for closure and/or write a brief "reflection" of your course. More importantly, the FCAR compiles performance vectors for your key assignments. The performance vectors are color-coded to give you a direct visual impression of how well you have delivered each topic in the course (summative assessment). You could even review and analyze the performance vectors during teaching to get just-in-time feedback from the class to help improve teaching (formative assessment).
