What Is LiveText?

LiveText is the assessment platform used by the School of Education and a few other units on campus to facilitate assessment processes. In addition to the assessment function, LiveText provides secure cloud storage for student work, which can be used to create secure ePortfolios that demonstrate student growth and disciplinary mastery. These ePortfolios can then be shared with potential employers
