Abstract

Objective: The purpose of study is to pilot a program in which all P1 students input their exam grades for each course in the fall semester into E*Value. Alongside their grades they record reflections on their performance. This information, visible only to the individual students and their advisors, is used to promote meaningful dialog during advising sessions.

Method: A form was created in E*Value for students to input their exam grades and reflections on those grades. Faculty advisors were asked to use this data during advising sessions. Feedback was collected through Qualtrics surveys for faculty and students as well as from a personal meeting with the P1 students. Data from the surveys and meeting were used to evaluate the program.

Results: 100% of students recorded exam grades; 94% of students recorded reflections. Faculty survey results (77% response rate) indicate that 90% used the program data to offer advice to students. On a scale of 1-5 with 5 being extremely valuable, faculty rated the program value with a mean score was 3.54. 68% of students responded to the survey and when rating the program as part of their advising session, they rated it 3.11 on a scale of 1-5. During a meeting with the students, they requested automation of grade input.

Implications: Program implementation would enable faculty to offer more specific recommendations to students during their advising sessions. It would provide students a personal record to track their success across courses and years.
