A Clearer Picture of Learning Outcomes

Assessment in higher education can take various forms. When it comes to collecting and analyzing assessment data, we specialize in supporting human-scored, direct assessment of learning based on student work products and performances.

Assessment Projects

Anyone who has collected student work across courses or programs, coordinated scoring activities, compiled the data, and convened others on campus to analyze the findings will tell you – it’s a lot to manage! Let us help you stop spending so much time on the administration of your outcomes assessment so you can spend more time figuring out what the data are telling you.

Course-based Assessment

Are course instructors responsible for scoring student assignments using program or general education rubrics? Using enrollment data from your student information system, you can easily set up course-based scoring initiatives. Ease the burden on faculty and provide a more enjoyable scoring experience while also collecting the data you need for course, program, or general education assessment.

Portfolio Assessment

Combined with rubrics, student e-portfolios are seen by many as an ideal way to assess intended learning outcomes. With over sixteen years of experience, we offer the most robust e-portfolio assessment system on the market, allowing you to align rubrics with portfolio assignments, control scoring options, and generate data reports to analyze student achievement.

Advanced Analysis Simplified

You don’t need a degree in statistics to make sense of the reports we offer in Taskstream. Analyze learning outcomes data through visually engaging charts and disaggregate the results by program, course, and demographics with filters. Examine inter-rater reliability. And, for those looking for more sophisticated analysis, we also offer the ability to export all data.

"Aqua has been tremendously valuable in moving our assessment processes forward. At UK, administrators are seeing the results and interpreting the data at the University level, while faculty are more engaged at the course level and making connections between assessment initiatives on campus."

"Using Taskstream as a collaborative tool across our 11 educational programs has created an environment of change and allows us to view data easily as a whole unit. We now have evidence based findings that we use to improve student learning outcomes and allocate resources across the educational unit."

"Prior to using Taskstream, we had many excel spreadsheets that were manually entered and managed by one person. The use of Taskstream has allowed us to have more people involved in the collection and analysis of data which has really helped us to improve our programs."

Director, School of Education, West Virginia Wesleyan

We could talk about assessment all day (or at least for as long as you care to).
