Next Release: 3.40 Training Release: Monday, February 4th, 2019
Direct Assessments -- Multiple Assessors
An Option is now available in Course Section Settings and Assignment Creation for "Student Submission in AEFIS" and "No Submission in AEFIS" Assignment types to enable Multiple Assessors. The Assignment final grade can be set to use a default grading method of average, highest, or primary instructor
Syllabus Template Versioning Added
Similar to our Course and Program versioning, this allows an institution, college or department to update their syllabus template and have the changes be added when the next term is activated. This will keep all previously entered data by instructors to stay intact and display the newly added sections/changes.
Disabling of Manual Cross-Listed Course Sections
Since most of our partners send their cross-listed course section information from the SIS Data Feed we have disabled manually cross-listed course sections. This ensures that the integrations between LMS' and AEFIS work without issues. If you want to allow your instructors to cross-list their course sections through the UI in AEFIS, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Practicums are now available!
Practicum Forms is where you can build a set of Survey Questions that will be sent to faculty/students for Clinical Evaluations
Practicum Schedules is where you schedule said forms in a linked together format so that you can evaluate in stages using two templates multiple times in a term.
A set of questions is required to be sent to instructor, but adding in a set of questions to be sent to students is optional
Can be sent Beginning, Middle, and End of the terms
Assigning Include/Exclude Groups allows you to set which sections will receive
Practicums is where you can view currently running/completed Practicums

Improved AEFIS Login Page
The initial Login Screen will default to the institution authentication as the login method (CAS, Shibboleth, etc.)
"Remember my sign in method' will automatically take the user to their chosen login
Various Social Login Options Implemented (Facebook, Linkedin, Slack, Google)
Syllabi Export PDF Zip File
On the Course Section Manager page, you will now have the ability to check off multiple sections and export all their syllabi into a zip file. This option can be found in the Actions dropdown located in the top-right.
Student Course Evaluation Analysis by Faculty & Student Course Evaluation Comments Analysis Reports -- Data displayed will only be of selected faculty
Previously, despite selecting which faculty to view comments data for, the primary and secondary faculty results would be lumped together when running the report. Now, only the selected faculty's results will be displayed regardless of whether they are primary or secondary.
Direct Assessment Assignment Linking -- Ability to copy from section to section
If course sections that share the same parent course access the Copy From tool, they can copy both the Assignments and their Assignment Linking from section to section
Data Collection Forms -- Ability to Export Submitted Forms
PDF, Print, and CSV Export formats have been added to the originally available Excel export.
Direct Assessments -- ability for forms to close correctly and generate results
Due to a problem with the Event Handler internal batch job, if an assessment ended the forms wouldn't automatically transfer to Assessment Results as expected.
Student Course Evaluation by Faculty Report
Faculty Parameter for this report was showing every available faculty for each institution, regardless of the user's permission level.
Exporting Survey Results Tree Data Bug
When attempting to export, a ; "corrupt file" error would render it un-viewable
Survey Results -- Faculty can access all their data
A bug prevented faculty from pulling their own course section survey results from further back than 2 years; all they would receive is scrubbed NA data. This permission issue has since been corrected so that all their data is accessible.
