Office of Institutional Effectiveness

Our mission is to facilitate the university’s continuous planning, assessment, and evaluation efforts for the purpose of enhancing the quality of the university’s programs, services, operations and processes.

To accomplish this mission, we:

  • transform data into useful information
  • foster the use of sound and innovative methods to gather, generate, analyze, report and manage data
  • provide accurate, consistent, relevant and timely information that is accessible to internal and external constituencies
  • facilitate the integration of this information into institutional decision making, policy development and planning processes

Academic Dashboards

These dashboards are maintained by the Office of Institutional Effectiveness. Key Performance Indicators for the Deans Scorecards have been established by the Office of the Provost and are based on data for academic year 2012-2013, calendar year 2013 and fiscal year 2013.


IPORT (formerly Statware) provides an interface that sits on top of the data warehouse. The interface offers point and click navigation to drill down and examine the KPIs across multiple dimensions.



Accreditation compiles documents related to our most recent reaffirmation and subsequent correspondence and report submitted to The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).

Institutional Research

(OIR) facilitates the collection, analysis and interpretation of institutional data that supports institutional management, assessment, planning and decision making. 

Academic Program Review

(APR) is central to Georgia State University’s planning and resource allocation process.  Periodic and systematic assessment of academic programs, including centers and institutes, and the use of assessment results to improve institutional effectiveness, are required by both the University System of Georgia and the Southern Association of College and Schools.
