CI Assessment Methods

Updated on

The CI Assessment Methods report is used to map CI Assessment Methodologies to your organization's Assessment Methodologies.

  • This is a two-part process where the Event Types used by your organization must first be linked to an Assessment Method. Then those Assessment Methods must be linked to the AAMC's CI list of Assessment Methods.
  • If your Assessment Methods already match the official list, then you can use the Automap option to link the records together. If your Assessment Methods DO NOT match the official list, then you will have to manually match the methods from your institution's list to the CI list.
  • For the CI Report, all Event Types must be linked to at least one Instructional OR Assessment Method.

While you can map both Instructional and Assessment Methodologies to an Event Type, any Event with both an Instructional Methodology and an Assessment Methodology will be considered Instructional for the purposes of your CI report. This is a function of the AAMC Curriculum Inventory report, outside of the control of Leo.

NOTE: Adding a new Assessment Method can break your export.

For this reason, you should NOT add a new Assessment Method unless you are sure that the record should be changed.
