What is MyCOE (formerly SCOPE)?
MyCOE is the College of Education’s platform for course-embedded assessments. This system is available to all COE students in all programs. It’s free, easy to use, and centralizes all evaluation data into one place. There is no setup necessary.
A developmental assessment system
Throughout the College of Education, aspiring teachers, leaders, and counselors use MyCOE as a tool for developmental assessment. It is designed to recognize and nurture the growth of education professionals by aligning their unique skills and efforts to a shared set of standards and indicators. Candidates choose their evidence and write about their experiences, and they get formative feedback and personalized guidance in return. With MyCOE, candidates can clearly see themselves growing and making progress.
Continuous program improvement and accreditation
MyCOE collects aggregate data that helps the College of Education identify its strengths, enhance its programs, and make important decisions. These processes are necessary for college and program-level accreditation.
Begin by logging into mycoe.umsl.edu using your UMSL SSO ID and password (same as MyGateway).
After logging in, you will see your dashboard containing a panel labelled My Ratings. This panel will list your current courses with course-embedded assessments. Click on the desired course to proceed.
- The resulting page should now be the Assessment Browser with a list of all the candidates in the course with their respective assessments and their statuses. Needs Rater Action indicates that the assessment has been submitted and is ready for rating. Click on an assessment to rate.
- Most assessments are divided into two parts: on the left is the candidates’ form submission, on the right is your scoring section. You may return the assessment to the student or complete the rating by clicking the appropriate box at the bottom.
After logging in, you will see your dashboard containing a panel labelled My SCOPE Assessments. This panel will list your current course-embedded assessments. Click on the desired assessment to proceed.
- The assessment view will have a place to upload evidence (e.g., documents, links, etc.) if necessary and a place for form-related input. Complete the assessment by pressing the green Submit button at the bottom of the page.
- No need to select a rater as the assessment is connected to your course/section. Your instructor will automatically receive your completed assessment. All evaluated assessments will have the rating criteria on the right side of the page to inform your completion of the assessment.
Do I need to set up my course assessments every semester?
No, once assessments have been setup for a course, assessment trials will be generated for students in each course section automatically every semester.
I have some students joining/dropping my course or switching sections. Is there something I need to do?
Nope, MyCOE checks every night for updated course rosters. New students will get assessment trials assigned to them and drop students will have theirs deactivated.
I don’t see any assessments for my course. Who should I contact?
If you know that your course has assessments and you no longer find them, try going directly to your My Ratings browser. If that doesn’t work, please contact the MyCOE assessment administrator at email@example.com. However, if you would like to have new assessments attached to your course, please coordinate with your course steward.
What else can MyCOE do for me?
For faculty and students of the College of Education, MyCOE is primarily an assessment tool. However, more generally, MyCOE is our central dashboard for COE operations and reporting. It handles room reservations, program marketing, faculty profile management and is under constant development. If you have question about what MyCOE can do for you, please ask your supervisor, chair, or dean.
I’m trying to finish my assessments, but when I log in, I don’t see my assessments panel anymore?
If the current term has officially ended, try going directly to your My Assessments browser. If that doesn’t work, please contact the MyCOE assessment administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I see ‘Foliotek’ mentioned in my course syllabus. Is that the samething?
No, Foliotek was the previous service the college used for assessments. Everything that was in Foliotek was taken over by MyCOE in the Fall semester of 2015.
Do I have to pay for this?
No, MyCOE is free : )
If you have any additional technical questions, issues, or suggestions, please contact the MyCOE assessment administrator at email@example.com.
