GVAssess Tip

Manage your labels. Outcomes into GVAssess are displayed for the entire department to allow ‘sharing’ among the degree programs. Because Outcomes are sorted alphabetically by the "Student Outcome Label" in GVAssess, you can use prefix codes to keep related outcomes clustered together throughout the site.

Example 1: Mathematics uses codes to group outcomes by program: Outcomes A, B, C, and D are general, but ELE-A, ELE-B, SEC-A, and SEC-B are unique to the elementary (ELE) and secondary (SEC) education emphases. 

Example 2: Movement Science uses codes to group by skill-type: Outcomes A-AT and A-SC relate to collaboration (A), while B-AT, B-CES, B-ES, and B-HFI all relate to critical thinking (B).
