Upgrade: iOBE Software v2.0

Thursday, September 17, 2015

iOBE Calculator and iOBE Aggregator have been upgraded to version 2.0. This upgrade covers the whole range of computations done by the software: collective/individual student outcomes in single/multiple courses, based on students' marks and percentages of students' population attaining specific outcomes levels.

With this upgrade, the software is able to:

  1. Compute outcomes attainment on Learning Domains (cognitive, affective, and psychomotor, as well as the six cognitive levels defined by the Bloom's Taxonomy).
  2. Detect and inform users if there are errors in input data. The previous versions couldn't detect errors; their computation simply hanged if the input data were invalid.
The upgrade in v2.0 requires additional information in the input files (namely the matrix for the mapping of Learning Domains). Therefore, the input files for v1.x cannot be used with iOBE Software v2.0 and above.

The manual and the compiler can be downloaded here. To download the software, click the buttons below:
  1. iOBE Calculator v2.0
  2. iOBE Aggregator v2.0 (LIMITED version: up to 5 courses only. Please contact the developer for a CUSTOMIZED version for your academic program.)
The software operation is designed to be very easy, with only a few buttons to click. The software takes about 3-5 seconds, on a standard desktop computer, to compute data for a course. For aggregated data, the computation time increases linearly with the number of courses. Input files for the software can be prepared relatively quickly (within 5 to 10 minutes), once end-of-semester assessment data are available.
