Use Case 13


Faculty will upload assessments and assessment items that are not multiple choice - open-ended responses include short and long essays, fill in the blank, student drawings, etc. Student responses associated with multiple choice items and open-ended items will also be uploaded to the database. Responses will be uploaded at the assessment level, not the assessment item level.


    • A simple user-interface exists for faculty to upload assessments and student responses.

Basic Course of Events

    • Faculty member has an assessment in word format, ready for upload.
    • Faculty member has a pdf, word document, some other format, of student responses, ready for upload.
    • Faculty member logs into the database, identifies the course they wish to add the assessment to. S/he enters the required metadata associated with this assessment and then progresses to a menu asking them to locate the assessment to be uploaded.
    • After (or at the same time?) uploading the assessment, the faculty member is prompted to locate the file or files with student response data to upload.
    • The faculty member is asked if the student response data contains any open-ended responses (we will need to include a list of what these are). If s/he responds 'yes,' s/he must also agree that student responses have been read for identifying information and that all such information has been removed (see security or IRB/FERPA for further discussion).
