On March 1, 2014, the Institutional Research and Planning (IRP) office began its transition to an Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Assessment (IEA) at which time official institutional oversight, training, and support for assessment activities across campus was transferred to it. As a result of this transition, several support structures were put in place to effect a culture of assessment and continuous improvement on the UWG campus. These included the hiring of a Director of Assessment, the establishment of institutional and divisional level assessment committees, and the appointment of assessment coordinators in every unit and for every academic program.
All units as depicted in the organizational charts located in the current UWG Fact Book, including academic departments, are responsible for documenting the assessment of outcomes related to its primary purpose. Assessment data is used to develop and implement modifications to service delivery aimed at improving effectiveness, efficiency, quality, and customer satisfaction.
Assessment at UWG is on an annual cycle using a staggered reporting schedule that corresponds to the operations of different units. Specifically, the timeline is created to reflect the time data collected in the assessment is available, current, and actionable. The due date reflects the date units are to have completed entering data into the online assessment system, Weave. Due dates are:
