Cornerstone is UCLA's choice of a learning management system (LMS). A learning management system (LMS) is a software application for the administration, documentation, tracking, reporting and delivery of educational courses or training programs. Cornerstone provides a central place for all of UCLA's trainings, customized dashboard, and reporting capabilities.
What are the benefits of moving to this tool vs. current practice? Observation Checklists in Cornerstone are a more streamlined and consolidated version of paper checklists. Managers can easily pull up reports of their employees’ progress, and employees can view their list of checklists and competencies at any time.
Who are assigned validators? Validators include anyone in a UD, CNS, CNE, CNM, NPD, ANI, and ANII position, as well as anyone else that unit leadership selects. These validators are approved per accreditation regulatory requirements.
How can a manager add a validator? To add a validator that is not included in one of the above roles, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with each validator's name, classification, email address, and ID number.
Do managers have the ability to pull a report or track their employees progress? Yes. Please see the above tip sheet for instructions on how managers can pull a report of their employees' progress.
