Message from the Provost


All GW faculty are committed to excellent teaching. Assessment allows us to record progress in student learning enabling us to communicate students’ success and accomplishments to each other, our students, alumni, and other important stakeholders. While support for assessment can be found throughout the University, the Office of Academic Planning and Assessment coordinates and supports assessment efforts in all units on campus. The Office’s web site contains a collection of resources on assessment, including a showcase of best practices. GW is committed to institutional self-examination and improvement. A key part of this self-examination involves assessing how well we are educating our students.
