What is LiveText by Watermark?
The College of Education is dedicated to ensuring we collect data on our courses and use this information to continuously improve our programs’ excellence. As part of this process, we are now using LiveText.com to collect assessments from instructors, students, and mentor teachers. LiveText by Watermark will post assessments each semester, and you will be asked to complete them by the end of the semester for the College of Education. While not all courses have associated assessments, you are required to complete any available assessments. Near the end of each semester, you should receive timely email reminders sent to the email address that is registered with your LiveText account. The deadline for completing all assessments coincides with the deadline for submitting end of term grades.
LiveText by Watermark Account
1) If you are serving as a Mentor Teacher for a UF student, the College of Education will send a cooperating mentor teacher account to your school/district email address. You should receive this email as soon as the placement is confirmed. These assessments review the UF student’s performance in your classroom and provide the College of Education with quantitative data on the performance of our students. This allows the college to identify areas for improvement within our programs.
If you did not receive the account email, please contact Rebecca Kidwell at firstname.lastname@example.org . The LiveText account activation email is sent directly from LiveText and should read as follows:
