Watermark Users

The utilization of Watermark, an electronic assessment system, allows educational students the opportunity to develop electronic portfolios and submit assignments online. It allows a holistic framework for reflection upon the central issues of teaching and learning, aligned with reflective writing required of candidates at earlier levels in the Teacher Education Programs. The portfolio involves process as well as a product; you will create a meaningful record of your performance during your course of study, during professional semester and to engage in ongoing reflection while applying your new teaching skills.
