Robust assessment and field experience placement

  • Assess a variety of coursework for a full view of progress, with enhanced support for educator preparation programs
  • Assign and coordinate detailed placements for clinical programs in one system
  • Create ePortfolios that showcase the entire learning journey with results

Gain a 360° degree view of student learning by assessing, tracking, and analyzing learning from coursework, clinicals, or internships. In one place, students complete assignments, organize artifacts and reflect, and log their time for field experiences. Evaluators assess their progress, giving feedback along the way. At the end of the journey, the resulting ePortfolio is a digital record used to power future success — for the student, the assessor, and the program.

What to Expect

Flexible assessment and reporting with common rubrics

Easily embed common rubrics into coursework and fieldwork to provide consistency and show student progress along their learning journey. Reports enable instructors to better support student needs and help administrators identify program improvements. When it’s time for accreditation, your reports have practically written themselves.

Students pull artifacts from LMS to add to their ePortfolio timelines; grades flow to and from your LMS, eliminating duplicate entries. Watermark Student Learning & Licensure integrates with major LMS providers.

ePortfolios add dimension to assessments by incorporating artifacts from courses, field experiences, and other programs. ePortfolios act as evidence of outcome achievement and program quality for state reporting and programmatic accreditation, telling the full story of how students progress through the program.

With all artifacts and assessments in one place, ePortfolios provide students with an excellent format to confidently market themselves for employers or the greater community.

Student Learning & Licensure lets students select their preferred placements, making it easy for coordinators to gather details and assign mentors. Everything happens directly in the tool.

Continuous integration with the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) database enables students to submit their placement preferences so placement coordinators easily match placements with assessment programs and assign mentors.

Student Learning & Licensure offers added support for educator preparation programs through disposition assessment with Educator Disposition Assessment (EDA) tools.

In partnership with the EDA, LLC, a team of researchers from the University of Tampa, we offer education providers a set of instruments to assess candidate dispositions in various types of programs, including traditional educator preparation programs, online programs, and educational leadership programs.

Offerings include the Educational Disposition Assessment (EDA), Dispositions of the Online Learner Instrument (DOL), and Educational Leadership Disposition Assessment (EDLDA).

Each of the Watermark-EDA packages includes the assessment rubric; a detailed technical manual, including a timeline for implementation and curricular suggestions; an initial calibration session with EDA experts; and annual calibration with on-demand training sessions.

Learn more about the Educator Disposition Assessment tools here, including a preview of the EDA rubric.

We also partner with SCALE’s edTPA. The Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning, and Equity (SCALE) seeks to transform P-16 teaching and learning so that all students – particularly the underserved – have equitable access to powerful, deeper learning and are truly prepared for success in college, careers, and civic life. SCALE created the edTPA, the first nationally available capstone performance assessment used for teacher licensure and to support state and national program accreditation.

Data from Student Learning & Licensure (formerly Via) flows directly into Watermark Planning & Self Study to support accreditation and continuous improvement efforts.
