If your program is within the College of Education, Health and Human Services (EHHS), then you may request an AMS account by contacting Sarah Wu, email@example.com. Let her know the name of the program(s) you need workspace access to, including the degree level (e.g., B.S., M.Ed., Ph.D.). If you did not attend an AMS training through the College of EHHS, then it is strongly recommended that you review the above AMS resources and/or sign up for a training through the Provost's Office (session dates are TBD).
Starting with the 2016-2017 report, programs will need to use the Accountability Management System (AMS) for submitting their annual assessment reports.
The College of EHHS developed resources and an online training series to assist with AMS. To take full advantage of the training series, please follow the below steps:
A) Sign into your Flashline account.B) On the left sidebar, click “Employee,” then click “Resources,” and then click “Additional Employee Resources.”C) Within the main portion of your window, click on the block that says “Taskstream” or “Watermark (Taskstream).” A new tab will open and you should be automatically signed into your account. However, if you are asked to sign in, then use your Flashline username and password.
>> STEP #2: Prep the Report
2a (for programs that are starting from scratch or redesigning their plans)
Fill out the above Template for Reporting in AMS. The purpose of this template is to guide you through the data input process. For your reference, here is a Completed Template Example for 2016-2017 Reporting.
2b (for programs that only need to add in the findings)
Gather the FindingsFor programs that only need to update their findings, you may still find the above template helpful, but you only need to fill in the "Assessment Findings" tables associated with each measure.
>> STEP #3: Add the Report to AMS
3a (for programs that are starting from scratch or redesigning their plans)
Once you have obtained an AMS account and filled out the Template for Reporting in AMS, then please watch the full training video. This video, which is a little over 15 minutes in length, covers how to sign into AMS, how to input the assessment report (i.e., mission statement, learning outcomes, measures, and findings), and how to submit the report for review.
3b (for programs that only need to add in the findings)
This video, which is approximately 7 minutes in length, covers how to sign into AMS, how to input the findings portion of the annual assessment report, and how to submit the report for review. This is a reduced version of the full-length training, and should only be used by those that do not need to input the full plan.
