AEFIS Assessment Tool

Rensselaer has engaged AEFIS as its provider of several online services related to learning assessment starting in Summer 2020.

AEFIS is the sole channel for faculty to file Course Syllabi and Course Assessment Action Forms with their departments. These online filings of syllabi and course assessment action forms are required each semester for all courses. The AEFIS assessment tool facilitates documenting the assessment cycle that includes: identifying student learning outcomes, learning opportunities to support achievement of the intended learning outcomes, assessments and assessment data used to inform teaching and learning, and plans for "closing the loop".

Student course evaluations are also conducted using AEFIS's online course evaluation tool, Course Evaluations.

Gaining Access to AEFIS

AEFIS is accessible through the AEFIS link on the RPInfo page under the Faculty and Staff Resources category. Login is through RPI Central Authentication Service (CAS) with RCSID and RCS Password.
