What do I need to do?

Step 1: Train your employees

OASIS C includes many changes. Questions have been added, removed, and modified. Be sure that your staff knows the questions and how to interpret them before they begin using the new assessments.

For resources that you might use in your training, see the previous section of this document titled “Where can I find more information?”

Your employees must be ready to use the new question set by January 1, 2010.

Step 2: Update your software

Be sure to update Prompt between November 16 and December 31, 2009.

Step 3: Configure your software

Implementation of OASIS C is required effective January 1, 2010. Switch to OASIS C before you create an assessment that has a M0090 date on or after January 1, 2010:

  1. On the Prompt main menu, type OU for Outcomes Management.
  2. Press V for Version Toggle as many times as needed until "OASIS Version 2.00 (01/10);" shows in the status bar at the bottom of the Prompt window.

What changes will I see?

Questions have been added, removed, and modified for OASIS C, and the Prompt interface has changed to support the updated question set. The following examples highlight some of the upcoming changes. We will provide more details about the interface changes at the time of the release.

DISCLAIMER: The examples included on this site are not exhaustive, and do not offer any interpretation of the questions. See the previous section titled “Where can I find more information?” for resources that can help with interpreting and answering assessment questions.
