Monitor trends in Cornerstone as a whole, or drill down to look at particular curriculums, content items, exams, and even SCORM content.

Track

Keep track of assigned learning completions and monitor organizational, managerial, and individual compliance.

Measure

Deep dive into assessment and evaluation responses to identify knowledge gaps, or investigate how people feel about specific learning activities.

Compare, combine, and control your data to give insights to those who need it.

Using Watershed and Cornerstone, you can put reports in the hands of those who need them—enabling employees, managers, and people who traditionally would not have access to data to make decisions based on it.

You can filter and segment reports using people and organization data from Cornerstone and other sources as well as compare and combine these reports with data from other learning platforms. Use organizational hierarchy data from HRIS to permission-restrict data, so managers only see their own people’s data in dashboards.


Add detail beyond completions with data from other sources.

Using Watershed, you can integrate Cornerstone data with data from other sources. As a result, you can see detailed data on learning activities that you may have integrated into Cornerstone—such as from LinkedIn, Pluralsight, O'Reilly, and Degreed.

This unlocks a previously unavailable level of detail. You are no longer limited to just completion data! For example, you can compare platform performance to drive continuous improvement in your learning programs, reduce costs, and improve efficiency.

The example report shows how search data from an LXP, such as Degreed, can tell you the popular topics learners are looking for. Compare this data to completion data from Cornerstone to identify the topics where searches result in low completion rates and the associated content that may need to be reviewed and improved.
