Comp - XM


MEET THE CHALLENGES OF ASSESSMENT AND ASSURANCE OF LEARNING

One primary challenge business schools face in assessing students is measuring their capacity to apply what they have learned in their coursework.

A simulation-based competency exam, Comp-XM® goes beyond reporting the recall of acquired knowledge. It provides a clear picture of how effectively students can use their business acumen to actively manage a business in an evolving, competitive market.

Easy-to-read reports provide extensive data that can be used for assessment, assurance of learning, and to support accreditation processes.

COMP-XM®—AN ALL-IN-ONE EXAM.

Complete flexibility

Depending on your course structure, you can use Comp-XM in the classroom, or as an online exam in a scheduled or self-paced format. It can even be adapted to fit courses of any length.

Essential learning goals

Through comprehensive research of more than 50 business schools, we distilled information to identify common learning goals. We clustered those to an essential list of seven goals found in almost every business school curricula. You can implement the big seven learning goals into your class or customize them to better fit your needs.

Optional questions on business ethics, teamwork skills, business communication, and multicultural awareness are built right into Comp-XM®. You can even tailor the exam’s learning goals to meet your curriculum’s requirements.

Relevant and secure

On an ongoing basis, subject matter experts rigorously assess all questions posed by Comp-XM’s simulated board of directors. That process ensures the topics covered in the simulation closely relate to contemporary curricula used by business schools around the world.

Using an extensive bank of equivalent questions, every exam is unique because each question is randomized. And since the questions are based on specific responses from each student’s own simulation, there is no opportunity to share answers.

An all-in-one tool, Comp-XM® can be used as a final exam, for curriculum development and program assessment, and to provide data for accreditation with organizations such as the AACSB, ACBSP, IACBE and others. Coupled with Capstone® or Foundation® business simulations, it closes the loop with detailed feedback on performance against learning goals.

With a question and answer system that evolves as students make decisions in their own business, the risk of answer sharing is eliminated. Ongoing scrutiny by tenured, full-time professors from various functional disciplines ensures the exam will maintain its relevance and rigor over time.

Adaptable to courses of any length, Comp-XM is the secure and simple solution for measuring both student performance and program effectiveness.

Comp-XM is ideal for any Foundation- or Capstone-based class that requires assessment or data for assurance of learning or accreditation.
