The FCAR is a snapshot of how well a particular course is meeting student outcomes. From here, the following questions can be addressed during evaluation:
As part of the effort to streamline the assessment process, EvalTools® goes much further in simplifying your job by automating the consolidating data process and computing the necessary performance vector for each key assignment assigned to meet a specific course outcome.
