Chalk & Wire

Chalk and Wire Accounts are free to all education majors.

Welcome to the Chalk and Wire (C&W) Tab.

Purpose: Throughout your program you will be assessed at various points using C&W. The data collected through C&W provides the necessary data for the College of Education to complete: 1) its national accreditation report, 2) its report to the NJ Department of Education and 3) our own monitoring for programmatic improvement.

Each teacher candidate (TC)/candidate (C) enrolled in an education program is provided an account to C&W after the add/drop period.

Getting started in C&W
You will receive an email from C&W to your WP email address. This introductory email includes your user id (first initial, last name) and a temporary password, along with instructions on how to log-in and change your password. Use the same password as your WPU email address.

How can I find my Chalk and Wire expiration date?

For users with existing Chalk & Wire accounts, continued access will be granted until the account expiration date. If you are a returning student or it has been a year since you've used Chalk and Wire, your account may be expired. To find your account's unique expiration date click the down arrow next to your name located at the top right corner of the Chalk & Wire Dashboard. The expiration date will appear as the last item on the list. 

If your account has expired or has an expiration date before the end of the semester, please submit a help ticket for a renewal at www.wpunj.edu/help. Do NOT click the Renew  link on the list. This link is for students who pay for their accounts and will require a code. NOTE: Expired accounts can only be renewed on the exact date of expiration.

When the correct name appears, click on it to select it. The name will appear next to a checkmark to indicate that it has been selected.
