New Electronic Survey Tool is Coming to SHU
Qualtrics, an electronic survey tool, will be available to the Seton Hall Community in January. Qualtrics Research Suite software simplifies the process of collecting and analyzing data. It also supports collaboration, making it easy to build and share surveys with peers within Seton Hall. More information will be shared within the next two weeks.
Qualtrics will replace ASSET, a survey tool developed at Seton Hall, that has been in existence since 2002. All ASSET users will need to download any important data sets and not create any new surveys within this system. Please contact the Technology Service Desk at 973-275-2222 with any questions.
Online Courses Pilot Online Identification and Exam Proctoring Service
Verification of one’s identity in an online course is quickly becoming a mandate for the accreditation of on many programs. The Higher Education Act Reauthorization (HEA) also states that as technology advances institutions are required to use technologically available solutions to verify students’ identities in distance education courses/programs. In an effort to comply with these mandates and ensure the validity of online courses, 8 online courses piloted Examity over the 2016 Summer and Fall semesters.
Examity offers various levels of proctoring which range from the verification of one’s identity against a government issued document (e.g. driver’s licenses) to also include a live proctor via webcam during an exam delivered through Blackboard. This was a new experience for students involved in the pilot and the Online Learning Committee of the TLTR has administered a survey to assess their overall satisfaction with the process. Additional information about the Examity pilot is available in a recent Setonian article.
Software Secure, an alternative online identity verification and exam proctoring solution will be piloted this Spring semester. If you are interested in piloting this software in your online course please contact Renee Cicchino at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 15, 2016.
