Managing Standards & Outcomes

With LiveText’s Standards & Outcomes Management engine, administrators can access and use existing
public standards in the LiveText database. Administrators can also create and import standards sets at the
institutional, college, department, and program levels to reflect their particular curricula, mission(s),
and goals. LiveText’s extensive standards database contains hundreds of national, state, and regional standards sets.

LiveText’s S&O engine provides further capabilities for administrators to manage the use of standards,
develop their own custom standards, and align the standards with rubrics at multiple levels.
The purpose of this tool is to facilitate richer outcomes-based assessment data for more informed
continuous improvement.
