Map: Creating Coverage Reports - Option 2

  • The steps below describe how to create a coverage report with your curriculum as the primary document and your accreditation standards as the secondary document.
  • This places your curriculum on the left side of the coverage table and your accreditation standards on the right side.
  • To display a different document (e.g., staff, instructional methods or assessments) against your curriculum in the coverage report, simply replace the accreditation standards document with the required document in the workflow. The process is the same regardless of which document you use.

To create a coverage report:

  1. Login to the Liftupp Portal on a laptop or PC (ExamSoft recommends using Google Chrome as your web browser).
  2. Click the Map button in the navigation bar at the top of the screen.
  3. Click the Coverage tab.
  4. Select your primary document (curriculum document):
    1. Click the arrow in the primary document selection box, to the right of ‘None’.
    2. Click the arrow to the right of ‘Documents’ to display a list of all the documents currently in Map.
    3. Select your curriculum document by clicking the empty circle to the right of the document name. A green check mark indicates the document is selected. This automatically selects all the items in the hierarchy of your curriculum document. You do not need to move through the document hierarchy and select items manually.
  5. Select items in your secondary document (accreditation standards):
    1. Click the double back arrow in the top left to return to the initial document selection screen.
    2. Click the arrow in the secondary document(s) selection box, to the right of ‘None’.
    3. Click the arrow to the right of ‘Documents’ to display a list of all the documents currently in Map.
    4. Locate your accreditation standards document. Select the items in this document that you wish to display in the report by using the arrows to move through the document hierarchy and clicking the empty circles next to the item names. A green check mark indicates an item is selected. You can select as many items as you like in the secondary document.
      Note:You must select every item manually, or by using the Select All option for each level of the tree. For secondary documents, selecting an item does not automatically select all items beneath it in the hierarchy.
    5. In the example below, the following items have been selected in the accreditation standards document:
      1. Accreditation standards as a whole (i.e., the accreditation standards document name)
      2. A topic, sub-topic and three individual accreditation standards.
  1. Review your document selections by clicking the double back arrow in the top left.
  2. Generate the coverage report:
    1. Click Generate to create a coverage report.
    2. The coverage report places the whole curriculum in the first column of the table and the items from the accreditation standards document in the columns to the right (see example below).
    3. Green check marks indicate items mapped between the two documents, whereas red crosses indicate items that are not mapped.
    4. The data aggregates, or rolls up, so even though you may have mapped at the deepest level of the document hierarchy, you can see the results for the accreditation standards as a whole or broken out by topic/theme, depending on how your accreditation standards are organized.
    5. The column for the accreditation standards as a whole (Accreditation Standards: ACPE Appendix 1 in the example above), is particularly useful as this shows whether your courses or learning outcomes have been mapped to accreditation standards. Red crosses in this column indicate that you still need to map these curriculum items.
    6. Use the pagination controls to view more rows and columns in the table.
  3. Download the coverage report:

    1. You can download the coverage report to share it with faculty or your accrediting body, combine it with other programmatic data, and review it further in Excel.
    2. Click Download to export the report as a .CSV file and save it to a suitable location.
    3. Mapped items are indicated by the number 1 in the download, whereas unmapped items, or items set as unmappable are blank.
    4. Use the Excel auto-filter to review your data in different ways:
      1. For example, deselect the blanks for a specific accreditation standard (e.g., Leadership Development in column I of the figure below) to show only those areas of the curriculum where it is taught. In this case, Leadership Development is covered by two courses in the curriculum (Pharmacy Practice and Intro to Health Care System) and two separate course learning outcomes.
      2. Alternatively, filter on different areas of your curriculum to review the accreditation standards covered by a specific year of study or course (e.g., Pharmacy Practice course in column D of the figure below).
  1. Amend the coverage report:
    1. If you’d like to change the data displayed in the coverage report, or create a new report, click the Amend option to return to the initial document selection screen.
    2. Either edit the existing document selection, or click Reset Selection to create a new coverage report.
  • You can display items from multiple secondary documents against your curriculum in the same report by repeating steps 5a-5d above for each secondary document you wish to include.
  • For example, accreditation standards, instructional methods and faculty can be displayed together alongside your curriculum:
