For 36 years, the SIIA (Software & Information Industry Association) CODiE Awards have honored thousands of software, education, information and media products for achieving excellence. Each nomination receives a detailed review by industry experts including executives and analysts, media, bloggers, investors, and, for the education categories, educators and administrators. Products are judged against category-specific criteria so the very best rise to the top and are named finalists.

Watermark is proud to announce that EvaluationKIT has been named as a finalist in “Best Data Management Solution” category. EvaluationKIT is fully aligned to an institution’s course evaluation and survey needs, capturing the data needed to improve course corrections and long-term improvements. The software integrates with all LMSes and other campus systems to centralize survey processes, ensuring consistent data collection across an institution over time, while allowing departments and faculty to
directly manage key tasks and tailor inputs. System administrators can automate all aspects of the survey process to streamline efforts, including controlling survey availability timelines at the course level and syncing with enrollment add/drops in real time.

With the CODiE Awards, finalists receive a second round of review by SIIA members between May 10 and May 21. Winners will be announced during a virtual celebration on June 22 + 23.

“The CODiE Awards recognize the most exciting and transformative products in Ed Tech,” said Jeff Joseph, SIIA President. “This year, these leaders helped our nation respond to the historic pandemic, enabling learners, educators, administrators and parents to remain connected to each other and to critical educational resources via an array of innovative services and platforms. Congratulations to this year’s finalists for demonstrating the vitality, resilience and importance of this important industry.”

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry’s only peer-recognized awards program. Educators and administrators serve as judges and conduct the first-round review of all education nominees. Their scores determine the SIIA CODiE Award finalists which accounts for 80% of the overall score. SIIA members then vote on the finalist products and the scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners.
