Flexible assessments demonstrate student achievement across experiences, including traditional and online courses, capstone seminars, experiential education, service learning, co-curricular activities, and more.

Easily embed assessments within courses, while assessing Gen Ed, co-curricular, and other campus-wide initiatives using direct and indirect measures. Analyze student performance by outcome, standard, cohort, and demographic to get a clear picture of progress.

Built-in reporting features provide quick access to assessment data. This helps instructors identify students in need of support more quickly, while providing administrators with powerful tools to document program and institutional effectiveness for accreditation and shed light on potential improvements.

Data integrations with your LMS streamline the process of assessing activities and showcasing achievements — wherever they happen. Instructors can link Via assignments to automatically return grades back to the LMS, eliminating double work, while students can pull artifacts from the LMS into Via to add to their timeline and use in assessment activities. By integrating Via with Planning & Self-Study, you can provide evidence to support accreditation reporting and contribute key insights to broader continuous improvement efforts.
