VIA by Watermark

All students who declare a major in teacher certification are required to purchase a subscription to VIA by Watermark. The subscription is required in the first semester of the freshman year.

VIA by Watermark is a learning assessment platform that will provide our college with a more effective way to engage you in your learning journey.  This system has replaced our previous PASS-PORT assessment system.

VIA will allow you to author and reflect on coursework and learning experiences, visually track your academic growth, store work, showcase what you’ve learned, and share your best work with others, including potential employers—now and for years to come. The College of Education Teacher Preparation Program (TPP) will also be able to use the same system to demonstrate the quality of our academic programs and gather data on learning to make change that supports continuous improvement and our quality assurance process.

The College of Education at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette has been an accredited institution since 1954 by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and now currently by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). Our assessment system is used to help the College of Education maintain its accreditation.
