Assessment of Student Learning

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 standards by engaging the University community in meaningful and effective assessment of student learning.  At Georgia State, we assess student learning

a)      in every degree and certificate program at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and

b)       across  the General Education curriculum.

A central element of this mission is helping program faculty to utilize assessment results in the development and implementation of strategies for continuous improvement in student learning.

How We Can Help

The Office of Academic Assessment offers one-on-one consultations and workshops for faculty and staff involved in assessment as they develop assessment plans, collect and analyze assessment data, report the findings of their assessment, and use assessment results for the improvement of student learning.  For additional ideas and resources, please explore the links to the left.

WEAVEonline and SLOAP

Georgia State currently uses two online platforms — WEAVEonline and the locally-developed Student Learning Outcomes Assessment Portal (SLOAP) — for the submission, storage, and review of assessment reports.  WEAVEonline will be phased out during the 2015-2016 academic year, after which SLOAP will be the principal online platform.  For more information, please visit the 2014-15 Assessment Cycle webpage.

All members of the university community have access to current and previous assessment reports.  To access WEAVEonline, navigate to and use the generic ID “gsu” and the password “assessment.”   To access SLOAP, navigate to
