Program Assessment System

  • Chalk & Wire provides a platform for faculty to assess individual student performance on course assignments and at the same time demonstrate competencies for program review.
  • It is a system that allows faculty to evaluate student learning outcomes specific to the academic program.
  • It is designed for program assessment in which faculty members collectively assess student work that is common across a program over time using the same set of criteria or a rubric. Results can be gleaned and aggregated each semester to evaluate program-level learning outcomes or disaggregated by important demographic variables.
  • Chalk & Wire is a powerful data management system that allows the program to conduct assessment of students’ competencies, which are linked to state and national standards and assessment instruments.

E-Portfolio Management System

  • Chalk & Wire showcases students’ work throughout their academic year in a portable, web-based format that can be taken with them after graduation.
  • At the end of the program, students will have a complete portfolio of critical assignments that document or demonstrate their skills and professional growth.
  • Students are given unlimited web-based storage and can create and design separate portfolios to target a particular type of position or career path and for other purposes.
