Watermark Planning & Self-Study

Watermark Planning & Self-Study Logo

The University of South Alabama (USA) uses Watermark’s Planning & Self-Study (P&SS) to document program and administrative units’ assessment reports, plans, and academic program reviews. Planning and Self-Study has replaced Nuventive Improve.

Watermark’s Planning & Self-Study (P&SS) is a tool designed to assist educational institutions in self-assessment and planning. The P&SS platform provides a comprehensive suite of tools and resources that enable institutions to create and manage annual assessments, continuous improvement data, and self-study activities.

If you have questions or would like assistance, please email assessment@southalabama.edu.



Planning and Self-Study can be accessed through SSO, single-sign-on.

  1. Visit Faculty-Staff Applications A-Z.
  2. Select “W” and the "Watermark Planning and Self-Study" link will appear.
  3. Enter your J number and Password to enter the application.

NOTE: Nuventive Improve will remain operational should the University’s assessment leads and contributors need to retrieve historical assessment reports. However, direct support from Nuventive Improvement will not be available.
