Build an inventory of current skills assessments, align and compare assessments across courses and sections, and identify areas of balance or gaps. Our Framework makes it possible to create common reporting on core competencies as well as domain objectives and compare across Gen Ed, major courses, and programs – even in a decentralized assessment environment.

Assessment Workflow Automation

Through a suite of embeddable tools that can be configured to capture and measure student learning, we automate assessment workflows and create a single home to review course assignments, deploy and review assessments, and automatically report assessment results. The time spent working across multiple, disparate assessment and reporting systems is reduced by ingesting existing faculty assessment instruments.

Assessment Reporting & Intelligence

With the Credo Education Platform, you can:

  • Streamline assessment reporting
  • Complete comparative and longitudinal reporting
  • Gain deep insight into students’ foundational skill development
  • Simplify skills measurement for faculty and assessment leaders

Closed-loop reporting supports faculty instruction in near-time and allows assessment leaders to prepare reports for institutional effectiveness and accreditation initiatives. Trackable student progression from Gen Ed to majors to jobs is made possible through a combination of closed loop reporting and flexible reporting dashboards. You can even build cross-campus and comparative views of foundational skill dissemination and attainment.
