2016-2017 Assessment Cycle

During 2017, we will complete the transition to a three-year reporting cycle.  During the first two years of the new cycle, programs will focus  on the collection of useful assessment data and will submit a “short” report presenting their findings.  During the third year of the cycle, programs will focus on analyzing previous findings and developing proposals for program improvement and will submit a comprehensive “long” report, which will be similar in structure to previous assessment reports.  More detailed descriptions of the new assessment reporting schedule and the timing of the assessment cycle are available below.

Long reports for the 2016-2017 academic year are due on May 1, 2017.  Short reports are due on September 15, 2017.  With the exception of some programs in the College of Education and Human Development (see below), all assessment reports should be submitted in the GSU Student Learning Outcomes Assessment Portal (SLOAP at sloap.gsu.edu).

To submit a report, please complete the appropriate (long or short) assessment report template and upload it in SLOAP as a Word or PDF document.  You may incorporate attachments in the template or upload them separately in SLOAP.  Links to the assessment report templates and instructions are below.

College of Education and Human Development only: CEHD programs that use LiveText may submit their assessment reports using a LiveText report template also used by the PEF for state program approval and CAEP accreditation.  The program report template will be shared with the reporter in their department LiveText administrative account and can be found in a folder labelled “Program Reports – 2016 forward.”  The reporter will complete the full report, annually,  following a single reporting deadline of September 15.  For questions about CEHD program reporting requirements, please contact Dr. Joyce E. Many, Professor and Associate Dean of Undergraduate Education and Educator Preparation, CEHD, at jmany@gsu.edu or 3-8104.
