Wichita State University has ranked as one of the top in the nation for its online bachelor’s degree in early childhood unified/elementary education. The rankings were released by SR Education Group as part of the 2018 Best Online Colleges for Value report.
This comes as no surprise to us.
T3 has been collaborating with the WSU College of Education Team since 2015. Their vision, leadership and ability to think outside the box led them to our doorstep with a very specific task in mind: Create a system that allows us to collect store analyze and report on assessment data to support our accreditation needs. Through this partnership, PASS was developed.
The Performance Assessment System for Students (PASS) is an online data management system custom built for COEd by T3. Working hand-in-hand with the COEd leadership team, T3 was able to develop a specific solution for the College.
“We contacted T3 about developing a new data management system that would meet the needs of our evolving programs and the requirements of our new accrediting body. We could not have imagined a better experience in working with the T3 team. They proved to be quick studies in learning about the assessment needs of education programs and crafted a system that was customized to successfully address those needs. They responded to every request we made and were diligent and thorough in guiding us through the implementation process. We highly recommend T3 and look forward to working with them on future projects.”

Considering how much has been accomplished by the College of Education under the leadership of Dean Shirley Lefever and her team, we’re not surprised that they achieved this national recognition. We’re looking forward to seeing how much more they can accomplish and will be there to support them with our services along the way.
