Our Commitment to Assessment of Learning

A message from M. Brian Blake, Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs

While GW faculty are dedicated to excellent teaching, their focus is on student learning. The process of assessment allows faculty to record progress in student learning enabling them to communicate students’ successes and accomplishments to each other, their students, our alumni, and other important stakeholders.

While support for assessment may 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 assessment resources, 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.


Signed, Brian
