In the School of Education, LiveText is used to analyze student learning outcomes and meet the accreditation requirements of its teacher education programs. All undergraduate and graduate teacher candidates seeking teacher or school personnel certifications are required to purchase a LiveText membership. This one-time purchase, comparable in price to the cost of a textbook, is valid for 5 years from the date of purchase.
The key benefit of LiveText for students is immediate access to faculty feedback on their performance across all Education courses. Having access to this information helps students reflect on their learning over time. LiveText allows students to share their assessments and showcase how they have met standards within their program. LiveText enables School of Education students to complete course assignments, submit program assessments, save projects and papers in a secure location, build an electronic professional portfolio, and showcase their educational growth.
LiveText facilitates the linking of program standards, goals and department outcomes directly to assessments and assignments. This provides the School of Education with an effective way to collect summative data on how our students are performing in specific areas of our programs and seek ways to improve our courses. LiveText is required by the School of Education in order to maintain our quality programs.
Students should purchase the Field Experience Edition of LiveText. Click here to visit LiveText’s website, or purchase access through the Bookstore. If you have an EXPIRED Livetext account, please renew your existing account, DO NOT purchase a new account.
New cooperating teachers will receive LiveText training during the New Cooperating Teachers Workshop, held on campus, approximately two weeks before University classes begin.
