Please Note: The Leader Insights navigational areas will vary in appearance, as the Insights that appear for an institution are contingent upon the Watermark Solutions that the institution uses.

 

The navigational areas in your dashboard may include the following: 

Strategy

The Strategy area contains insights that are pulled from the Planning & Self Study and Curriculum Strategy solutions.

Planning & Self Study data that is referenced in the Strategy area allows users to monitor which programs or organizations are making progress articulating their mission, outcomes, and maps and which organizations might need a nudge.  Current widgets include: 

  • Mission & Outcomes Definition: View the progress Organizations, Programs, and Courses are making with defining their mission, outcomes, outcome alignment, and curriculum maps
  • Programs Mapped to Institutional Learning Outcomes: Identify which programs have created alignment to the Institutional Learning Outcomes. To inspire dialogue, the widget contains a drill-down from where program Leads can be reached out to.

  • Curriculum Proposals by Year: Shows the total count of Curriculum proposals, as well as a referenceable breakdown of total proposals for New Programs/Courses and Revised Programs/Courses. Also provides count and percentage for total number of proposals that have been accepted.
