Drury University has partnered with Watermark as the campus assessment and electronic portfolio tool of choice for schools and programs.
Student Learning and Licensure (formerly Via) is a modern and flexible platform to assess student learning in the classroom, field, and co-curricular activities, report on learning outcomes achievement, and provide students with timelines of work and ePortfolios to track and share their learning journeys.
Benefits for Students
Student Learning and Licensure (formerly Via) allows you to create an e-portfolio that will be required for the Fusion curriculum. With Watermark, you have the opportunity to more deeply engage in your learning by documenting and reflecting on your experiences both inside and outside the classroom, tracking growth, receiving real-time feedback from instructors on how to improve, and showcasing and sharing key work samples throughout your time at the institution and even after graduation. In addition, you have a centralized system for:
Privacy and Sharing Information
Benefits for Faculty
Planning and Self-Study is a planning and management platform that allows documentation, analysis, and archival of outcomes assessment at any or all levels of the institution by utilizing an evidence-based approach to continuous improvement. Watermark Planning & Self-Study helps institutions more easily collect and report on assessment planning efforts across departments, programs, and colleges to meet goals for continuous improvement and accreditation. Watermark Planning & Self-Study centralizes planning, program review, and accreditation reporting processes, directly connects planning and assessment data, and integrates with other campus data sources. This module will be used for accreditation preparation, annual outcomes assessment and program review. In addition to leveraging an innovative architectural foundation, Planning & Self-Study offers unique capabilities, including:
Watermark Planning & Self-Study links assessment planning directly to classroom data for better reflection and action planning. Users can align outcomes to courses in an intelligent curriculum map — which populates alignments between courses and outcomes based on measures created in planning — and directly link course data at even the section level to assessment plans. With streamlined views of results and past actions, administrators can roll up assessment data from multiple courses to determine progress against a measure and report on institutional learning outcomes across various courses and programs. Longitudinal reporting allows administrators to view outcome trends over time and easily compare across planning cycles on progress toward goals, types of measures, and actions taken.
With these capabilities, we can more easily track where and how outcomes are being assessed, pinpoint gaps in curriculum, identify and monitor the effectiveness of improvement actions, and ensure assessment plans continue to improve each cycle — all while being able to generate a regional accreditation report from this work within a single, centralized system.
Common use cases in Planning & Self Study include:

Faculty Success (formerly Digital Measures) by Watermark organizes and builds reports on teaching, research and service activities. It enables faculty to keep track of your activity information just once so that many outputs can be prepared, such as annual activity reports, promotion and tenure documents, accreditation reports, CV, and more. It also assists administration in responding to requests for faculty-related data, rather than needing to continually ask for the information thereby enabling the Drury campus to communicate more effectively about faculty accomplishments. To collect, understand and report on faculty activities and accomplishments for accreditation, grants, annual review, and promotion and tenure, and to provide you with better resources to showcase and reflect on the full picture of your work and contributions to the institution and your field.
