Enforcing Category Tagging: Balancing Academic Freedom with Consistency







Session Description

Discussion of how a College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences brought consistency to their question tagging while allowing faculty members to retain their academic freedom. This session discusses our faculty’s process for deciding on five key areas that need to be mapped within ExamSoft. We demonstrate how we leveraged unique identifiers within category names, Excel formulas, and good old copy and paste to help monitor the plan. Participants will leave with an outline of the plan and a spreadsheet that will automate the process of ensuring questions are tagged according to the plan.
