University Business’ readers nominated a variety of products that have made a positive impact at colleges and universities this year, and LiveText has been named a Top Product Choice.
Chicago, IL – January 8, 2014 — LiveText Inc. is pleased to announce that its assessment and accreditation management product has been selected as a University Business Readers’ Choice Top Product for 2013.
Now in its second year, the annual University Business Readers’ Choice Top Products award recognizes the most innovative products in higher education. This prestigious list informs university leaders and administrators about the products their colleagues around the country are using to help their institutions and students excel.
The winners were selected by the editors of University Business from hundreds of nominations submitted by readers and actual product users. Winners were selected based on both the quantity of nominations and the quality of the nominees’ testimony of the product.
LiveText enables colleges and universities to systematically collect data on student performance, measured against program and institutional learning outcomes. With streamlined student, faculty, and administrator views, LiveText offers a broad range of capabilities for students to develop, submit, and reflect on work, including e-Portfolios, and for instructors to assess and provide immediate feedback on that work. Administrators can then collect data on this process, report it, and use it to inform decisions as well as display evidence of continuous curriculum, program, and institutional improvement over time.
“LiveText is committed to developing the solutions that our higher education partners need to meet the challenges of effectively assessing their students. We want the assessment process to be easy enough so that it is used extensively. It provides the feedback students need to improve their learning. At the same time, LiveText provides the data that administrators need to show that their institutions are progressing,” says Dr. Chris Kalmus, President of LiveText.
The complete list of products is being announced in the January 2014 issue of University Business magazine.
“The fact that we saw an increased response in the second year of this recognition program is a testament to the interest that higher ed leaders have in products for improving educational outcomes and operational efficiencies,” says JD Solomon, editorial director of University Business. “All of the honorees in our Top Products program should be very proud of their achievement.”
