Access to the system

Login to the system using your StarID + password:

https://stcloudstate.aefis.net

If you are already logged in to MS Office 365, the system will automatically log you in.

Access to the different components of the system is based on role. Individuals have access to their own courses but have the ability to grant access to others. Program and department faculty have access to aggregate data for the department or program. Aggregated data will be available as information moves from course to program to department to college/school/unit and on up the hierarchy.

Students

Students will interact with the system through portfolios, assignments, and/or surveys, depending on how their program or department uses the system. AEFIS has a dynamic Portfolio function that allows flexibility for the student to develop a verified collection of their curricular and co-curricular work. A link to the Presentation Portfolio can be provided by the student so that potential employers, graduate schools and others can view the portfolio. The system will also allow students to share their portfolio(s) via LinkedIn and other social media platforms.

 

Faculty

Faculty will use the AEFIS portal for assessment planning, data input/collection, analysis and reporting at the course, program, department, and institutional (Liberal Education and Our Husky Compact) level.

The system can manage faculty credential information, course syllabi, and other assessment and accreditation reporting functions.
