Academic Assessment and Review

 

Our Mission

The mission of the Office of Academic Assessment is to ensure Georgia State University’s compliance with SACS and the Board of Regents by engaging the University Community in meaningful student learning outcomes assessment.  At Georgia State, we assess student learning

a)      In every degree program at the undergraduate and graduate levels

b)       And across General Education.

This mission includes utilizing assessment results to help programs develop and implement strategies for continuous improvement in student learning and course/program development at every level within the university.

How We Can Help

The Office of Academic Assessment offers workshops and one-on-one consultations for all degree program assessment coordinators as they gather data and report the findings of their assessment of student learning.  We also prepare and hold feedback workshops for all academic departments.  Through the University Senate, specifically the Committee on Academic Programs, we have developed two sub-committees that oversee the assessment review process:  the Undergraduate Assessment Committee (UAC), the Graduate Assessment Committee (GAC).  These sub-committees are integral to providing formative feedback.

As part of the SACS requirements, the Directors of Academic Assessment also write annual assessment reports, based on the data from the review sessions of UAC and GAC.  These reports are then submitted to the Associate Provost for Institutional Effectiveness.

WEAVEonline

Georgia State uses the software WEAVEonline as the place to capture and store our assessment data on a continuous basis.  We have used this software since 2005.  All members of the university community have access to this information by logging into the URL below and using the generic ID: gsu and Password: assessment.      (WEAVEonline logon: http://app.weaveonline.com/gsu/login.aspx)
