Centralized assessment planning

Manage all of your institution’s assessment planning efforts in a central location. Flexible data collection, including integrations with Watermark and other systems, makes it easy to capture many types of evidence of student outcomes achievement. Automatically generate intelligent curriculum maps from assessment plans, and use roll-up and drill-down reporting to reflect outcomes across programs and visualize the impact of assessment efforts in context. Strategic planning capabilities enable alignment of outcomes and objectives at all levels to your institution’s mission and goals.

A sleek, engaging user interface eases the process of creating annual plans, assigning roles, and fostering collaboration within a structure that mirrors your institution’s hierarchies. Intuitive workflows guide faculty through related tasks, and interactive dashboards provide transparency into assessment plans and outcomes achievement.

Create and compile your self-study narrative and evidence in accreditor-specific templates that align evidence and narratives to the guidance in your accreditor’s standards. Our flexible system facilitates collaborative reflection and narrative writing, and makes it easy to incorporate evidence into the body of narratives. Rich-text editing supports graphics, tables, attachments, and more.

Include the evidence you need, including results from assessment plans. Annual reports present outcomes, measures, results, and actions in an aligned format that can be easily incorporated into a self-study report to help demonstrate assurance of learning with accurate, replicable reporting.

Engage programs in thorough review, reflection, and reporting with Program Review. Monitor program review cycles to determine viability, ensure programs are properly resourced, and provide feedback to foster continuous improvement.

Program Review pulls results captured in Planning & Self-Study directly into the comprehensive program review report template, providing contributors with organized information to help them easily view and reflect on their assessment work and understand what’s happening in their program.
