LiveText FAQ

What is it?

LiveText is an online e-portfolio and assessment system used by The School of Education to gather data about student learning to maintain accreditation by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) as required of all teacher education programs by the State of New Jersey. The College uses the data to continuously improve the quality of its programs and maintain its prestige and accreditation standing, enhancing the value of your degree in the marketplace.

Why do I need to register?

One or more of the courses in your professional program will require you to submit assignments in LiveText. Therefore, you will need to register as a LiveText subscriber, but you will only need to register once in your academic career. You will have access to this account for five years.
