Education: LiveText Tutorials

LiveText is the Educator Preparation Program’s centralized assessment system for the teacher certification unit. LiveText functions as a valuable tool to support each program's current assessment efforts for uniform data collection across all programs to track student progress. LiveText manages and assesses institutional reports, self-studies, and program assessment plans, it collects, analyzes, and reports based on our institutional outcomes; and manages all accreditation requirements through a single, comprehensive program. Livetext meets the state/national requirement for a comprehensive, unit-wide assessment system for our teacher certification programs. The Unit supports making data-driven decisions about how to best meet the needs of our candidates by creating high quality programs that reflect our commitment to scholarship, professionalism, diversity, collaboration, and the effective use of technology.

LiveText Requirement - Field Experience Module

The Educator Preparation Program requires all Armstrong pre-education students to establish a LiveText account and candidates to maintain their account in order to be retained within a program.

Account Purchase/Registration

Candidates purchase this account as they would a textbook or other material for a course.  To purchase LiveText, visit the LiveText website, and purchase the ‘Field Experience Membership Edition.' Membership purchases can also be made at the bookstore; however, it is recommended that you purchase your account online. When you register it is important that you select to be associated with the “Armstrong State University” domain and include your full legal name (must match enrollment records), Armstrong (907) numeric student ID number, Armstrong e-mail address (primary), and date of birth. Account Registration Tutorial

It is required that you make your user name consistent with your Armstrong email user name. You may select any password you want, but please don't forget it!

If your account is not properly associated with the Armstrong domain, you will not be able to view your courses, complete any inquiries, or submit any assessments.

* Accounts can be transferred to/from other institutions (domains).

Membership Term

The initial membership term typically covers the length of your program plus one year in the field (undergraduate, based on continuous enrollment). This is a one-time purchase fee and is good for five years of use. Renewal rates to extend services after LiveText membership expiration are available for one, two, and three-year periods. More information is available from the LiveText web site.

Name Changes

If for any reason your name changes, e.g. marriage, please contact LiveText to update your account user information. If not updated, this could prevent you from viewing your courses and assessments.
