Chalk & Wire aligns assessment platform with LMS offerings

Cal Easterling, Dean of Institutional Effectiveness for Oral Roberts University, added, “All parties are more engaged. The integration streamlines our entire process which, when added to Chalk & Wire’s extensive high load solutions, has made our original vision a tangible reality. Today we have stronger student persistence, thanks in part to Chalk & Wire.”

Chalk & Wire’s complete integration benefits include:
· Chalk & Wire ePortfolios will appear at the course level as normal assignments directly in the user interface of an LMS including Blackboard™, Canvas, D2L, Jenzabar, Moodle™, Sakai and others
· Single sign-on compatibility
· Improved workflows and elimination of redundant labor
· Assessors can push grades directly to gradebooks adjusted to the correct internal settings for scoring and weighting
· Institutions and programs can collect Direct Measure, outcomes-based assessment at the same time as faculty are grading.

“As a pioneer of higher ed system integration, we know professors have limited bandwidth, so we continue to create a more streamlined and transparent environment for assessments,” said Geoff Irvine, CEO, Chalk & Wire. “Our ePortfolio Connect Server increases efficiencies by eliminating time spent by faculty and students logging into various systems or submitting and assessing the same work multiple times.”

Chalk & Wire offers higher education institutions a comprehensive, campus-wide platform that includes ePortfolios, forms & surveys, assessment processes, analytic, live reporting and accreditation management.
