Assess Student Work in LiveText

Last modified 5/12/2022

Illinois State University students, faculty, and staff use LiveText by Watermark to manage key assessments throughout the Teacher Education experience.

After students submit their work, Instructors are able to assess it by following these steps:

1. When students are in yellow (awaiting assessment) on your Dashboard, click the blue Assess link for that assignment (Figure 1).
