Organization: I/M & A/M

These features list all Instructional and Assessment Methodologies defined in your system and allow you to edit and maintain these lists.

  • Instructional Methodologies (IM) describe how a learning Event (or Long Event) is taught.
  • Assessment Methodologies (AM) describe how learning will be assessed.

There can be multiple Instructional and Assessment Methodologies assigned to an Event. However, only those methodologies that are linked to a given Program will be available to Courses and Events within that Program.

The process for managing Instructional and Assessment Methodologies is the same.

For the purpose of this article, we are referring to Assessment Methodologies but the same workflow can be applied to Instructional Methodologies.

The Curriculum Reporting option that sends data back to your accreditor  will have an official list. You need to map your A/M set to the  official A/M set. If the two sets are the same, you can auto-link the records. If they are different, then you will need to link the records  one by one.

Assessment Methodologies (A/M) are normally assigned by your accreditor.  You can add and/or modify the records for use within your curriculum.

  1. Code: Make sure a new record code follows the numbering scheme of the Assessment Methodologies that already exist.
  2. Name: Search for existing or create a new one word name.
  3. Save Record

Do not adjust existing codes unless you are absolutely sure of what you are doing. If not sure, then please call the help desk before adjusting this field.

A/M are only made available to a Program after they have been linked to the Program.
