In 2019, the Office of Accreditation and Assessment implemented AEFIS as a key project tool for the ILO Initiative. AEFIS (Assessment, Evaluation, Feedback, Intervention System), is a cloud-based assessment data management platform and will serve as a centralized system for real-time assessment data collection and outcomes reporting. AEFIS also provides the following functions:
Different levels of learning objective and assessment data will populate the system and be linked to one another. Therefore, the user will be able to see the hierarchical linkages of a course objective, i.e., course objective linked to programs objectives, to college objectives, and finally to ILOs. As UNMC begins collecting curricular, assessment, and accreditation data, learning outcomes can be directly linked to UNMC’s mission and institutional values.
AEFIS also offers different dashboard views that allow users to see different schematics, such how many course objectives are linked to one specific course objective, concentration of ILOs within a specific program, etc.
