GVAssess Tip

Manage your labels. When entering Outcomes into GVAssess, they are not separated by sub-entity. All outcomes will be listed together for the entire department. This is intentional to allow ‘sharing’ of common Outcomes among the degree programs.

You can distinguish outcomes that are unique to a sub-entity by adding a code prefix to the Student Outcome Letter. For example, Biology has 10 sub-entities. They prefix “NRM” to all Natural Resource Management outcomes (NRM-A, NRM-B, etc.). Education outcomes are prefixed with "ED".  

Because Outcomes are sorted alphabetically by Student Outcome Letter in GVAssess, using a common prefix also serves to keep related outcomes clustered together throughout the site.

Have a great assessment resource we can post here?
