Exxat Academy: Student Questionnaires


In this installment of Exxat Academy, we’ll be talking about Student Questionnaires. By that we mean evaluations, surveys, quizzes NOT tied to specific sessions or placements. STEPS already gives you the ability to create questionnaires for specific sessions under the Session To Do List. Now you can also create any type of survey, questionnaire, evaluation, or quiz outside of the session at any point in the year. This enhances your ability to capture and work with student data.

Here’s how:

  1. Contact your Exxat representative to set up the questionnaire.
  2. Once the questionnaire has been set up, it will appear in the student module under a new left hand menu tab.
  3. Watch the responses roll in in real time.
  4. Run reports on the data.
  5. Follow-up with students who have not yet completed their questionnaires.

Some examples of useful questionnaires might include:

  • Self-evalutions before, during and after a session
  • Entrance and Exit evaluations before and after a session
  • Quizzes

Exxat Academy: Working with Student To Do Lists


Welcome to our new training and education series: Exxat Academy–Blog Edition. You’ll be receiving educational emails from the Exxat Team with helpful tips and tutorials for using STEPS. We’ll also be putting up companion blog posts in case you miss an email. Today we’re talking about working with Student To Do Lists.

With the old version of STEPS, you needed the Exxat Team to help you add or edit Session Activities on your students’ To Do List. Version 2.0 puts the power in your hands. Now adding, editing, and deleting activities on your students’ To Do List is so easy you can do it yourself!

Here’s how:

  1. Go to Placements (Session) and locate the session you want to work with.
  2. Select the blue Session Setup button for the session you want to work with.
  3. Select Session Activities from the orange To Do List box.
  4. This brings you to the list of Activities for that session. To edit an activity, click the corresponding green edit button and make your changes. To delete, click the corresponding red delete button.
  5. To add an activity, click the green Add Activity button at the top of the page. You can then add the details of the new activity.
  6. As always, don’t forget to save!

For a full tutorial, check out our new training video “My Placements – Completing To Do List” in the Tutorials section of your system. Jennifer Thomas will guide you through adding, editing, and deleting Student Activities.
