Assessment of Sport Studies Coursework - LiveText and Key Assignments

  1. All students in this program are required to have an account for LiveText, a web-based electronic portfolio service. The subscription access code card for LiveText is purchased from the Tusculum College Bookstore. Your LiveText account is valid for 7 years and will be used throughout your program for submission of course-based Key Assignments.
  2. Key Assignments are used to evaluate your progress toward meeting program and applicable state and/or national standards and to inform program improvement. Once your assignment is uploaded to your LiveText portfolio, it will be assessed by your instructor using a 4-point rubric (4=Exemplary, 3=Proficient, 2=Developing Proficiency, 1=Not Proficient). Key Assignments do not require a minimum score but must be uploaded to LiveText to receive a passing grade in the course.
