Miami U. looks to streamline assessment

Assessment-LMS integration will support professors as they analyze learning outcomes.

assessment-integrationHigher education assessment provider Chalk & Wire has become a certified partner with Instructure, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) company and creator of the Canvas learning management system (LMS), to integrate its assessment platform with Canvas for Miami University.

Through the integration, Miami University professors will be able to assess gains in competency over time while in the same session grading student coursework in a single, unified system.

Chalk & Wire appears at the course level as normal assignments directly in the Canvas user interface. Miami University uses Chalk & Wire to define, document, assess and analyze student learning outcomes for individuals within its College of Arts and Science, College of Creative Arts, College of Education, Health and Society and for some of their General Education programs.
