The UMKC School of Education uses LiveText, a web-based accreditation management system in order to meet state and national accreditation standards. LiveText allows faculty and administration to track student progress as it relates to the relevant educational standards met by our programs.

Students will find that LiveText provides them additional benefits, such as:

  • An online document storage area available anywhere with an internet connection, and the ability to share stored documents with fellow students
  • A system for creating and sharing professional portfolios that can be disseminated to potential employers.

Students who do not have a LiveText account and who are enrolled in courses with key assessments will will receive an email from shortly after the start of the semester. The email will provide a unique link that will allow the student to open a LiveText account. LiveText accounts expire after five years; we can assist you with the export of portfolios or other documents to an external location prior to expiration. Please contact the Assessment Coordinator, Carol Sargent ( if you need assistance with LiveText.
