For courses being assessed in the 2017-18 academic year,  the due date for your submission of the Assessment Plan (Task & Rubric) is October 1st

To review how the GEAC members review submitted the Assessment Plan (Task & Rubric) you can refer to this document.  GEAC Review Procedures for Assessment Plans (Formerly Form A).

If you conducted assessment in the last academic year, 2016-17, your submission of two sections of the template:  Assessments Results and Action Steps was due July 1st, 2017.

If you conducted assessment in 2015-16, you were asked to complete the Action Status Update by July 1st, 2017.  

The General Education Assessment Committee (GEAC) will be reviewing submissions and send out reminders if information has not been submitted.  

Note:  Submision of information to GEAC invovles both entry of data into the system and clicking the "Submit Button" on the Submission & Read Reviews tab in the workspace.  

 Update to the Look of Taskstream for Fall 2017

Starting June 29, 2017, the color scheme and look of the AMS system we use for Program and General Education Assessment will change to a new color scheme.  Some slight changes to the placement of tabs and buttons will also occur.  Note that the main functionality and processes to use the system will not change.   All the information you have entered remains, and your login credentials will remain the same.  If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Patrick Barlow, Assessment Coordinator.  To take a look at these changes, please review this screen shot guide or this Mediasite video

Basic Information about the Process

The Submission Dates for General Education Assessment are:

  • October 1st of current academic year:  Submission of Task and Rubric in the Assessment Plan section (Previous Form A)
  • July 1st of current academic year:  Submission of Assessment Results and related Action Steps (Previous Form B)
  • July 1st of following academic year: Submission of Action Status Update (Previous Form C)

UWL has transitioned from the previous software for general education assessment to the Taskstream Assessment System.  The standard process of review and elements for submission have remained primarily the same.  

In order to help support your use of the new system to submit information to the General Education Assessment Committee (GEAC), we have created some helpful documents below organized by task. Please reference these as you complete your work in the system. If you have questions about the Taskstream System, contact Dr. Patrick Barlow, Assessment Coordinator. Questions about GEAC committee process can be directed to the committee chair, TBA after August 30th.
