Read more about what we've been up to at Fisdap, including updates, bug fixes, and new features.

Students participating in the beta can now access the Mobile Skills Tracker by going to www.fisdap.net/mobile
The goals report was incorrectly calculating “live intubations.”  It’s now fixed.
The bug that was causing all scheduler shifts to initially show as “12-31-1969” has been fixed.
The Goals Report PDF should now be working in IE8.
The beta includes browser detection and will recommend that users upgrade if they are using a non-supported browser.
Ages are displayed in sequential order in the Goals Report.
The goals report is a lot faster.
There was a bug that would occasionally prevent narratives from being saved when a student used the “next” and “previous” links at the bottom of the Patient Care forms.  It’s been fixed.
Students were unable to report ages <1 year.  Now they can.


PRE 4 now available for FREE pilot testing.

February 16, 2012
We are excited to announce the release of the Paramedic Readiness Exam 4 (PRE 4) for pilot testing. This exam has gone through Fisdap’s content validation phase and is now ready for your students’ attempts. Your participation is critical to validating this exam, so pilot tests are free for your students. Instructors can schedule this exam in the Test Scheduler tool--look at the bottom of the test drop down menu options for “Pilot Exams.”
 
This new comprehensive exam (PRE 4) reflects the 2010 American Heart Association Guidelines and the new Education Standards. The PRE 4 contains 200 multiple choice items and covers the 6 content areas from the NREMT’s 2009 National EMS Practice Analysis.
 
Participation in pilot testing is a great opportunity to give students additional exposure to critical thinking items, but we don't provide cut scores or Learning Prescriptions during pilot testing.

Fisdap Eval Makeover

October 13, 2011


As you've probably noticed, we recently made some big changes to our website.  We're presently putting the final touches on a complete redesign of the Skills Tracker, which will launch later this year.  We are really excited to begin sharing some of the changes we've made with our community of users--and we're starting with the eval system.
 

A new look

We think a big part of having a user-friendly web experience is an aesthetically pleasing interface.  Along with the new Skills Tracker will come a redesign of our entire member site that will be a lot like what you see at fisdap.net before you log in.  Starting today, our eval system features that new design.  You'll notice our new color scheme and font style complement the new score buttons--which are now larger and tablet/iPad friendly!
