Data Collection System

LiveText and Learning Outcomes

LiveText is the data collection system that is used by Southern University to collect data on program and student learning outcomes.  The faculty within each program identifies student learning outcomes for all courses offered each semester.  Rubrics are then developed for courses taught within each degree curriculum.  Faculty members who are teaching these classes make assignments for each course per semester and assess student learning outcomes in each educational program.  Faculty members, along with the leadership of the chair, convene to determine the extent to which student performance matched expectations towards program learning outcomes.  Remedial measures are taken to enhance instruction and student learning as needed.  All programs are required to use the LiveText system to collect, analyze and use the result of data to improve programs and student learning outcomes.
