Student Assessment


All students in the College of Education and Professional Studies are required to purchase LiveText, which is a learning outcomes assessment system.

While meeting accreditation standards, the ultimate goal of the College’s assessment system is to ensure that we provide our students with a high quality educational experience whereby graduates will be positioned to succeed as future educators.

In September 2017, LiveText joined forces with two other companies, Taskstream and Tk20, to integrate operations, resources, and human talent to better serve higher education. With a shared vision of empowering institutions to better use their data analytics for improving learning, they created a new company – Watermark.

Taskstream, Tk20, and LiveText were each pioneers in the field of learning technology for over 20 years and known well to their partners for high levels of customer support and effective assessment technologies. The new brand Watermark has been designed to convey the company’s commitment to providing trusted technology and educational intelligence needed to improve student learning outcomes at all levels.

One can visit the new corporate website,, to learn more about the company and the services it provides.
