Learning Management Systems and Remote Assessment: Challenges and Opportunities

From the 2021 Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference (CLEC) - Recorded February 26, 2021
Presented by Esther Biswas, PhD, MB(ASCP)CM and Sam Biswas, PhD

Accrediting bodies require evidence that each component of knowledge delivered in a program adequately prepares students to pass certification/licensure exams, and to practice competently within that profession. This session reviews several learning management tools in providing data-driven insight into student learning outcomes and exam security in face-to-face and distance learning.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to

  1. Explain the differences between ExamSoft and other common learning management systems in terms of mapping student learning outcomes to body of knowledge competencies.
  2. Evaluate the strengths and weakness of browser-lock down software, artificial intelligence and remote live proctoring in ensuring exam security.
  3. Describe the benefits of electronic-based assessment platforms in terms of administrative efficiency, cost and carbon footprint.
