Criterion: Communication & Navigation


With a wealth of information, the Office of Institutional Assessment at George Mason University is this month’s NILOA’s featured website because of its clear navigation and communication strategies. For easy navigation, the site has two menus to guide users through the different pages as well as links within the text. Each section is titled so that the type of assessment information can be found. The information on student learning outcomes assessment is located all in one place. For clear communication, this website presents a graph for when surveys are scheduled, administered, and analyzed. The data generated can be sifted through their special program, generating graphs and tables tailored to the user. Moreover, the reports generated by this office highlight key findings using lucid language. We encourage you to click around on their website to see a number of ways to present and organize an institutional assessment page. By providing a great amount of information in a well organized and clear manner, GMU’s Office of Institutional Assessment is NILOA’s featured website.
