Consolidating Assessment of the Core

In January 2016, Georgia State University and Georgia Perimeter College merged. Although courses in the core will be offered at both the downtown campus and the new Perimeter College, the consolidated GSU will have a single core curriculum with a common set of learning outcomes and assessment processes.

Departments that offer courses in the core are harmonizing the structure and content of those courses and developing common assessment plans. We plan to implement the new consolidated assessments during the 2016-2017 academic year. The following resources will be of assistance to those engaged in this process:
