Blackboard is our university's management system for online course delivery. To simplify data collection and aggregation for various accreditation reports, we have researched various online tools that can be accessed through Blackboard. We were excited to discover a multidimensional, rubric-based tool called Waypoint that allows us to provide detailed evaluation feedback to students about specific assignments while at the same time permits us to construct rubrics, align objectives with professional standards and core curriculum standards, collect and aggregate data for accreditation reporting, and design assessments for the acquisition of core curriculum skills by all undergraduate students at the university. These are our reflections after using this tool for the past year.
