Leader Insights - A Watermark Labs Feature

At Watermark, we’re on a mission to provide meaningful insights to help you understand your current state, inspire action and drive progress. In this vein, we’re thrilled to share the Insights area designed specifically for institutional leaders! Emerging for now within Planning & Self-Study, over time you can expect to see this area grow in both depth and breadth, to include insights from other Watermark products.

As a Watermark Labs release, we plan to refine the user experience and features in this area rapidly, so please don’t be alarmed as things evolve. But the substance released today is solid and is ready for you to use! We invite you to explore it and consider sharing it with your institution-level leaders. We also look forward to hearing your feedback once we’ve had a chance to introduce a few more facets.

 

Enhancements to Leader Insights

We’ve recently added some small but mighty new features to the leader insights area, to equip you to answer more questions, drive progress, and navigate to deeper insights about assessment plans:

  • Monitor Course Learning Outcome Definition

  • Navigate to an Assessment Plan 

  • Email leads about progress

As a reminder, institution-level leads can access this area by selecting “Enter Institution” in the My Leadership area on their Planning & Self-Study home page, and then clicking the “View Insights” button. Administrators can access this by clicking on the top Institution profile link within Organization Management.

Emerging for now within Planning & Self-Study, over time you can expect Leader Insights to grow in depth and breadth, and to expand to include insights from other Watermark products. As a Watermark Labs feature, you’ll also see us refine the user experience and features in this area rapidly, so please don’t be alarmed if things evolve or look a little different when you next log in.

 

Programs Mapped to Institutional Learning Outcomes Widget

Institution leads and administrators can now understand the progress programs are making in aligning to the Institutional Learning Outcomes (ILOs). This exciting new widget also includes a drill-down for each Institutional Learning Outcome, so you can identify the programs that have or have not mapped to a specific Institutional Learning Outcome.

Institution leads and administrators can now quickly email leads to celebrate progress or remind them to engage. A link to email leads for a given organization or program is available in all drill-downs from the Mission & Outcomes metrics, as well as the Participation in Assessment Planning widget.

Watermark Labs 

As a refresher, a Watermark Labs feature is functionality made available to everyone while we continue to improve upon it. It allows you to take advantage of these features today, provide feedback, with the asterisk that there may be some areas for improvement as we continue to develop the experience. The Watermark Labs status will only be applied for a limited time while we continue to actively update the work.
