TracDat, a software product from Nuventive, has been adopted as our assessment management tool. With an annual cost of approximately $13k, this software will be hosted from servers run off-site by Nuventive. You might want to read some of their literature and references: http://www.nuventive.com/products_tracdat.html. Training on the LSSU campus will begin after spring break 2012, and continue through the summer. We are planning to be able to complete our first cycle of program assessment reports by late fall 2012.
Until our campus training sessions those interested in how the software is used may find the following links to other TracDat sites informative and instructive.
