AEFIS – Assessment, Evaluation, Feedback and Intervention System, as an integrated assessment management solution, provides stakeholders with the opportunity to collect, review and analyze data from all of its eight solutions, which represent the pulse of their institution. AEFIS is the preemptive platform that transforms higher education data into predictive and proactive analytics.
Our mission is to create meaningful value from the assessment of teaching and learning to enhance the student and faculty experience. Our passion is empowering stakeholders with evidence of learning across an institution, using existing accreditation and continuous improvement reporting structures as a conduit to data-based decision-making.
AEFIS Analytics and Reporting Framework offers access to data in ways that institutions may have not had the opportunity to experience in one place, one platform. Our own continuous improvement model enables us to use feedback from partners to not only improve upon existing reporting structures but to create new ones in response to the needs of our institutional stakeholders.
We are only as successful as the partners we serve and to that end, we believe institutions have a unique opportunity and responsibility in defining and improving the effectiveness of higher education. Thus, we are committed to providing partners with the most efficient ways to review and share data with leaders who will make the best decisions aligned to institutional strategic initiatives. By combining our mutual mission and passion to provide a greater value to students, we are confident we can assist in moving ever closer to meeting outcomes for student success and institutional effectiveness.
AEFIS Analytics and Reporting Framework
AEFIS Analytics and Reporting Framework provides institutional leaders with reports aimed at supporting data-driven decision-making. Some reports and dashboards are available at a press of a button, and while others provide a deeper dive into the data to allow for closer analysis. Whatever the purpose, there’s a report for that. In addition, we also believe that whatever you put into AEFIS, you can easily export. With that in mind, we offer standard file exports including CSV, Excel, PDF and in some cases Word. Our framework offers access to data through four main channels to users with proper permissions:
- In-Line Reporting: enables integrated, real-time reporting into each of AEFIS’s solutions synchronized with the users’ specific roles in AEFIS. They operate in real-time, at the point of need.
- Canned Reporting: provides users with reusable reports across multiple solutions within AEFIS. For reports on data pertaining to a recurring set of specifications or institutional interests, these are a series of prebuilt reports that a user can easily create (and recreate).
- Visual Dashboard Reporting: provides users with a set of Business Intelligence reporting features, enabling visualization of aggregated data across different key performance indicators with drill-down and instant filter capabilities suitable for further analysis and predictive analytics reporting.
- Ad-Hoc Reporting: represents more of a snapshot in time. Users can take a closer look at the details of the data, comparing different variables to explain results made evident in canned reports.
