Peerceptiv, a provider of collaborative learning technology, achieved Caliper 1.1 conformance certification today from IMS Global Learning Consortium. Caliper-enabled data allows institutions to understand, visualize, and improve learning outcomes through better understanding of student usage and learning activity data.
Peerceptiv will release its new Caliper-certified data feature as part of a larger initiative to increase its own data and analytics offering. Peerceptiv will be implementing its new Administrator Dashboard, allowing department chairs, instructional resource officers, and other administrators to make data-driven comparisons across courses and programs and drive improvement at their institutions.
“Data has always been a core value for us here at Peerceptiv,” said Mark Limbach, CEO of Peerceptiv. “We want our users to be able to monitor progress and measure outcomes. Offering our users Caliper learning activity data makes their job easier, and lets them show the progress they are making to the Provost and all the users they serve.”
Peerceptiv offers research-validated peer assessment, allowing instructors to more easily engage students and develop writing and critical thinking skills. Peerceptiv facilitates peer and instructor feedback-sharing and collaboration, and is frequently used to more effectively scale learning in higher enrollment courses. The new Administrator Dashboard will allow administrators to access all Peerceptiv courses, manage activity, and measure outcomes with a single login.
“Caliper enables high volume, real-time streams of activity data that can be tracked and analyzed to help inform student success initiatives,” said Mark Leuba, Vice President for IMS Global Product Management. “We applaud Peerceptiv for achieving conformance certification for Caliper 1.1.”
