LiveText

A centralized data management system, faculty members utilize LiveText to collect critical assessments of students pursuing a degree within the Perkins College of Education, as well as students outside the education college who are earning a teacher certification. LiveText provides the necessary tools for uniform data collection to track student progress across all programs. It also features the tools for reporting aggregated data to the state and national accrediting agencies regarding comprehensive assessments, plans, reports and evidence of learning for the unit as a whole.

As part of its management and assessment of institutional reports, self-studies and program assessment plans, LiveText collects, analyzes and reports based on Perkins College of Education institutional outcomes and manages all accreditation requirements through a single, comprehensive program. It meets the state requirement for a comprehensive, unit-wide assessment system for our teacher certification programs.

The unit then works to make data-driven decisions about how to best meet the needs of SFA's teacher candidates by creating high-quality programs that reflect the college's commitment to scholarship, professionalism, diversity, collaboration and the effective use of technology.
