What's in EvalTools® OAS

OAS - Outcomes Assessment System
FCAR - Faculty Course Assessment Report

We design OAS to streamline and help improve each program's effectiveness in teaching delivery and gauging student learning meets targeted learning outcomes. We adopt the FCAR assessment model to allow automation in data collection, analysis, and action item generation to close the loop for improvement. Automation is possible because EvalTools uses: 

FCAR Methodology

EvalTools® OAS Framework

EvalTools® Role-Based System

FCAR Methodology

EvalTools® focuses on gauging teaching and learning effectiveness by providing means to faculty to access their teaching/student learning in a formative or summative manner using FCAR methodology. Faculty can strategically select assignments that correlate to assessing a Course Outcome (CO), Performance Indicator (PI), or Student Outcome (SO).

EvalTools® OAS Framework

EvalTools® is the most advanced toolset for outcomes assessment. It integrates proven best assessment practices, including a Rubric-driven Assessment Model and an FCAR Assessment model.

In addition, EvalTools® has over 20 years of proven results in preparing programs for ABET accreditation. We have accomplished significant achievements with ABET, Middle States accreditation with programs implementing the latest methodologies and systems for outcomes assessment. We achieve outstanding results because EvalTools® comes with an Outcomes Assessment Framework.

EvalTools® Role-Based System

EvalTools® RBS provides features grouped in "Offices" much like the functional units at school as follows:

The faculty's Office and Student Desk provide the typical LMS features where the day-to-day teaching and learning occur. With OAS, EvalTools® uniquely provides Chair Office for program assessment management.


EvalTools OAS Unique Features

Performance Indicators (PI) can be designed to measure breath or depth. In either case, the question remains on the roll-up data from each FCAR at course level being used to compute the aggregate average of a PI. EvalTools® 6 gives you a greater flexibility in classifying PI into three domains according to Bloom’s Taxonomy that applies to different levels of courses.

In addition to PI Classification, if your PI definition focuses on breath, then course-level classification will give you another way of assessing your PI. The course-level classifications are: Introduction, Re-enforced, and Master/Assessed-Level.

This is the most advanced feature in outcomes assessment. You could refine and separate a class that has multiple-major students in meeting their corresponding programs’ outcomes. This feature is particularly useful for a department having multiple programs that have common courses in meeting different sets of student outcomes. EvalTools® is the ONLY toolset that has this feature.

As a final push in preparation for the accreditation visit, you are often confronted with how to organize objective evidence according to Student Outcomes. It is even more complicated if the same objective evidence is used to map more than one Student Outcome.

With so many courses, objective evidence, and Performance Indicators within Student Outcomes, the amount of effort in organizing them in a meaningful and easily accessible for the Evaluator to review is NOT a tiny task or even easy. 

To make life easier for the ABET evaluator during a visit to your campus, EvalTools® rolls up a complete electronic objective evidence site to easily examine the evidence extracted from the course portfolio in EvalTools®.


EvalTools Evaluator Portal

EvalTools organizes the evidence in Good, Poor, and Average accordingly for each student outcome. You can go GREEN without printing a single piece of paper for objective evidence. You can even provide the evaluator access to your evidence folders before the visit.

Why EvalTools® Course-Exit Survey

EvalTools® uses direct and indirect assessment instruments to paint a complete picture of your program. An outcome-based course-exit survey is the unique survey instrument EvalTools® provides. The course-exit survey contains the traditional questionnaires you used at the end of the semester to collect input from students regarding their classes' teaching and their perception of attaining the corresponding course outcomes. The indirect survey instrument is integrated into the EvalTools® OAS.

Main Available Formats and Features:

Embedded Course-Outcomes Survey

EvalTools® Survey Options

The course assessment survey category can further be grouped into (i) general course survey and (ii) outcomes-specific course survey. 

Outcomes-specific Course Survey is a unique feature of EvalTools Survey. Course outcomes are, in general, different from course to course. Embedding a set of changing questionnaires into a campus-wide survey is difficult. EvalTools provides a uniform platform to allow faculty members to define their course outcomes and includes those course outcomes in the university-defined standard survey. By doing so, University can maintain a consistent means of tracking the delivery of its outcome-based education.

The General survey, on the other hand, can also be grouped into (i) specific-purpose surveys like Senior-exit or Alumni surveys and (ii) create-your-own format surveys. 

There is no limitation on how many costumed surveys you can create. You can deploy a custom survey for a specific study or to a targeted audience on or off campus.


ABET does not mandate course outcomes assessment but on how well students gain learning outcomes. However, Middle-State accreditation or institution-wide assessment needs every course delivery to have a clear set of course outcomes. EvalTools course-exit survey is the best in-direct assessment tool to support University's effort to deliver an outcome-based education.

EvalTools® comes with advanced survey instrument that is integrated well with the rest of the direct assessment instruments that give you a 360 view of your program's strengths and weaknesses for outcomes assessment. 


EvalTools® Survey does it all for you

It is particularly useful for faculty in generating their own annual self-evaluation report. EvalTools® allows faculty to generate their own trend course-exit survey data.

Just to brag

EvalTools® deployed 76 surveys that collected seamlessly over 7000 responses. It provides detailed data in a convenient format for analysis resulting in an excellent 10-year Middle-States accreditation for the University.

Email Alert

You could batch-send alerting emails to faculty to remind them of the class response rate for the end-of-term class survey or the course info/syllabi setup. You could also send batch emails to students.

EvalTools Closing-the-Loop Action Items


EvalTools® CIMS

Closing-the-loop activities can generally be classified into two main areas: course-level and program-level improvement. FCAR provides an effective means of capturing course-level improvement by tracking reflection and suggested action items. The Figure on the left shows a sample of the summarized action items. EvalTools also make tracking program-level improvement easy.

About EvalTools®
Self Study

EvalTools® Self-Study includes a simple way to track references to objective evidence and produce your final report in just a few clicks. It comes with a comprehensive survey module to simplify your collection of results for a specific study or a campus-wide survey deployment for a selected group of participants.

As with any other accreditation, there are guidelines and suggestions for preparation. But you will need to define or figure out "how to" in getting everything together for the self-study report. Accreditation, such as ABET, is tedious and time-consuming. An institution-wide accreditation such as the Middle States is even more of an issue. Without a toolset, the process and time spent preparing and tracking material needed for accreditation are often challenging. In addition, the frustration of managing a large staff, faculty, students, and board members involved in self-study preparation is significant.

Self-Study Objective Evidence Reporting Sample

Systematically organizing objective evidence for easy tracking or referencing is a difficult task. EvalTools Self-Study provides a systematic structure for the category and organization of your vast resources for each study question. Please look at the following sample to see how EvalTools does it.
