Learning Assessment at Gallaudet

The Gallaudet University community recognizes the need to adopt an assessment process that advances evidence-based decisions about teaching, learning, bilingualism, diversity, campus life, academic support, and student development. This process employs data-driven decision-making to continuously increase student achievement and institutional effectiveness.

AY2015-2016 Reporting Calendar:

The new cycle of 2015-2016 in WEAVE will be launched at the end of June 2015.  

Some notes:

  1. If your program mission, SLOs, or measures (assessment tools) have not changed, you may proceed and roll over these specific information from the 2014-2015 cycle to the 2015-2016 cycle. You should be able to see "Copy Associations and Connected Documents from 2014-2015" -- go ahead and click on this button.

  2. If you need to update or revise mission, SLOs, or the measures in the 2015-2016 cycle, you may do so. Select the mission, SLOs, or the measures then click on the editing icon (displayed as a sheet of paper with a pencil) and update/revise as necessary.

  3. If your program SLOs have changed but your data collection has not begun, then the new SLOs will be entered in WEAVE next year. Data from 2014-2015 needs to be reported for this year. *Contact norma.moran@gallaudet.edu if this scenario applies to you, and we will develop an appropriate action plan.* 

  4. Each program SLO is to be assessed on an annual basis from now on. 

  5. The analysis questions (in the Assessment Reporting section under the "Assessment" tab in WEAVE) have been updated for the new cycle. 

  6. Please do NOT enter the results of your measures in the cycle 2015-2016 prior to August 2. 

Reminder I: The 2015-2016 cycle is a reporting cycle based on the 2014-2015 assessment data. For this academic year, you need to report on any assessment data you collected from 2014-2015.
