The Assessa application is designed to allow users of our data collection systems (universities, schools, organizations, and businesses) to collect observational data on subjects using forms that are designed and made available on our web application (at www.facultytools.com).

The system can be used to collect peer reviews, classroom observations of teachers or students, environment or facilities walk-throughs/audits, and reviews of employees or services (such as in a restaurant or shop setting).

Quick Start

With version 1.1 of this app, users of iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad devices can start collecting data immediately. After installing the app, enter your initials and email address in the 'Observer' fields. Additionally, set 'Email Report' to 'ON' (the email is used only to send your observation reports to your email address for printing and storage, and allow you to access your data). Once you enter these fields, click Lookup to pick a pre-made observation form. The chosen form will be loaded onto your device.

When you see the 'Subjects' page, you can start observing! To add a subject/person to observe, click the '+' button on at the ‘Subjects’ page; enter the first and last name and click ‘Add’. Then, click on the subject to observe, select and answer questions, and return to the 'Subject' page to 'Send' your observations to the system, which will prepare and email you a report.

- Customizing the System

If you would like to create your own custom forms, view and print consolidated observation reports, and enter your subjects/persons to observe, you can use the web-based portion of this system by visiting www.facultytools.com. A single-user account may use the basic version of our system for free. You can set up your own form/questions, and enter a list of subjects to observe. Then, you can use the app to collect data, which is submitted to the reporting database. Reports can be set up to automatically sent to the observer, the subjects, or printed via the web.

When you set up your custom form, it will be assigned an ‘Instrument ID’. To use your specific form on an Apple device, you have to start the Assessa app and click ‘Settings’ and enter the Instrument ID to load your custom form.

When you see the 'Subjects' page, you can start observing! When you are ready to observe, click on the subject to observe, or you can add a subject/person to observe by clicking the '+' button, then enter the first and last name and click ‘Add’. New subjects are automatically saved to the your account. After you select a subject to observe, you then will select and answer questions on the observation form, and return to the 'Subject' page to 'Send' your observations to the system. If you have your email address entered in the ‘Settings’ page, the system will prepare and email you a report. Additionally, with an account on our FacultyTools server system, you can log in to view reports on-line, print consolidated reports, and export data for further analysis.

What's New in Version 1.1

The following are feature additions/changes for this version:
1. Now supports iPad in addition to iPhone, iPod Touch.
2. When entering responses, the comments section is expanded.
3. Observers can now operate completely from the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad, without visiting our application web site. To do this, the user enters their observer information (including email address), and chooses ‘Lookup’ to obtain a pre-made observation form. They may then start observing immediately, and reports can be sent to their email address. Observers may still select their own custom observation form (by setting up a form on our web-based application, then entering their Instrument ID into the app).
4. Users can enter subjects (those who they are observing) on the fly.
5. Finally, users can have the system send an automatic report of an observation to their own email.
