Reporting and Analysis

LiveText Reports
Users can create comprehensive, clear reports in LiveText that visibly reflect the assessment process and assist in making meaningful improvements at the course, program and institutional levels. Individual and aggregated reports can be generated on student progress as well as on the meeting of outcomes and standards. A brief overview of the following reports will be provided in this section: the C1 Assessment Report, Curriculum Mapping Report, Rubrics Statistic Summary Report, Standards and Outcomes Alignment Report, Standards/Outcomes Report and the Student Profile Report.


C1 Assessment Report
The C1 Assessment Report can be used by both faculty and administrators to demonstrate student growth and levels of achievement on assessments. This report can be tailored to show the data collected for standards, courses, assessments, and assignments. Faculty and Administrators can choose to filter the information by dates, assessment type, and scoring type.

Faculty and administrators can cross reference assessment data with data collected in specific fields from LiveText forms (if the form was launched from their account). This is often used to separate assessment data by program or other data points. The requirement is that the individual or individuals being reported on must take the form and be assessed with the rubric. Any individuals who did not take the form will be excluded from the assessment report the moment the form is added. The form dataset must reside in the Admin Account and the dataset cannot be archived. Additionally, the student profile filters can be used to disaggregate assessment data for further analysis.


To create a C1 Assessment Report:
  1. Click the Tools tab located at the top of the screen.
  2. Go to the Reports tab, click the New button and select Assessment Report under the category --C1 only--
