Redesigning EDSMART
EDSMART - Original Design Principals
  • Make clear knowledge, skills and dispositions
    expected of candidates
  • Contain evidence that will be looked at in making
    these assessments
  • Make clear standards and/or cut scores with
    respect to areas of performance
  • Contain diagnostic/analytic and summative levels
    of data and information

EDSMART - Challenges and FileMaker Software
  • Ongoing challenges have impeded developing
    EDSMART so that it fulfills its original design
  • Propose to redesign EDSMART using FileMaker
  • user-friendly, relational database and relational
    database application creation tool
  • prefabricated database and database application
  • tools for building custom databases and database

EDSMART v2 - Advantages
  • Familiarity Many COE staff/faculty already use
    FileMaker for their data management and reporting
    needs. This means that staff/faculty are already
    somewhat comfortable using FileMaker and existing
    student and program data already in FileMaker v7
    can be easily transferred to FileMaker v9
  • Data Transferability FileMaker v9 is compatible
    with Oracle and MySQL databases, which means that
    existing EDSMART data can be easily transferred
    into FileMaker, and that data can be pulled into
    EDSMART forms from TSPC and ODE databases

EDSMART v2 - Advantages
  • Modifiability The database structure and data
    entry forms can be easily modified using
    FileMakers Graphical User Interface (GUI) and
    built-in functionality, which reduces, or even
    eliminates, the need for programming expertise
    and, in turn, means much less reliance on UCS
    time and staff resources
  • Form Similarity Data entry forms can be
    developed so that they appear the same as, or
    very similar to, the assessment forms that staff
    and faculty have to complete. This reduces
    training costs, user anxiety, and time spent on
    data entry

EDSMART v2 - Advantages
  • Customizable Reports
  • Data reports can easily be customized based on
    specific program or individual needs
  • Data Analysis Extraction
  • Data forms can contain embedded functions for
    displaying the results of simple analyses (e.g.,
    sums, percentages) data can be easily extracted
    in a format (e.g., tab-delimited,
    comma-delimited) that is conducive to loading
    into Microsoft Excel or SPSS for subsequent
  • Multiple Platforms, Web-Based Access
  • Can be used on both Windows-based and Macintosh
    computer platforms supports multiple
    simultaneous users and web-based access using
    standard browsers such as Microsoft IE and
    Mozilla Firefox
