Accelerate insights into learning outcomes achievement

  • Engage scorers in a simple and straightforward rubric-based assessment experience that encourages good practices and produces valid, immediate results
  • Monitor and support the assessment process with tools that surface inter-rater reliability, facilitate scorer calibration exercises, and make it simple to adjust resources or scoring goals
  • Quickly ramp up the assessment process by following a project creation wizard through no-stress setup
  • Swiftly analyze learning outcomes achievement, pinpoint successes, and identify areas of improvement using interactive reports that include visualizations and drill-ins on key attributes

With Outcomes Assessment Projects, it’s easy to use rubric-based assessments to measure achievement of institutional and program learning outcomes. Do all this without tying the data back to student records, giving you quick access to reliable insights into your progress. And report on standards or outcomes with dynamic filters and comparison views — all built right in.

What to Expect

Start quickly, scale broadly

Whether you’re seeking to understand the effectiveness of your general education program, other institutional initiatives, or large programs, Outcomes Assessment Projects pulls together everything you need to manage the assessment of student learning at scale. It offers a way to gather artifacts of student work from multiple courses across the institution that align to the outcomes you need to assess, from general education to cross-institutional initiatives.

Build reusable outcome and rubric libraries to power your assessment of student learning and support data collection over time. Then, follow the guided path to configure projects with evaluators, assignment settings, and scoring rules to assess specific outcomes. Source samples of student work however it best suits your institution, whether manually, in bulk, or through seamless LMS integration. Once the pieces are in place, sit back and relax as the software takes care of randomizing distribution and intuitive scoring experiences engage evaluators in their work.

Watermark Outcomes Assessment Projects was built with extensive input from educators and administrators like you, and is uniquely designed to set scorers up for success. The scoring experience itself is straightforward and carefully crafted to keep things simple. Evaluators love the way they can view student work alongside the rubric, move fluidly from assessing one artifact to the next, stay organized, and keep track of their progress.

Routing, randomization, scoring rounds, and more are handled behind the scenes so evaluators know immediately what’s theirs to review and can get right to work with minimal training. And with fast project setup and reporting tools that make it easy to surface key measures of student learning, it’s easy to run calibration projects to orient faculty who are new to assessing learning outcomes and scoring on rubrics.

Interactive reports include visualizations, so key insights instantly tell the full story. Track evaluator, assignment, and scoring activity as well as evaluator reliability to monitor progress, detect issues early, and provide support when needed. And when the results are in, dig into powerful outcome performance reporting that serves up aggregate means and distributions across criteria and program learning outcomes. A carefully-designed offline PDF experience is also on-hand so you can get your reports to go.

Outcomes Assessment Projects is just one part of a suite of complementary solutions that intelligently share data, giving you a comprehensive understanding of your institution’s effectiveness so you can drive progress.

Maximize the reach and impact of the results you surface in Outcomes Assessment Projects by integrating them into Watermark Planning & Self-Study, where you can reflect on them in the context of your ongoing assessment reporting cycles as well as program reviews, strategic plans and accreditation self-studies.

Student Learning & Licensure, a complementary solution, supports course-embedded and field experience assessment methods and engages instructors and students directly in conversations about outcomes achievement and assessment results across their learning journeys.

"We knew student learning was happening at our institution, but we didn’t have a lot of data we could point to and say, ‘Oh yes, this is where it’s happening.’ Outcomes Assessment Projects enabled us to produce quantitative data that allowed us to say that."
