Welcome to the Georgia Tech Office of Academic Effectiveness! As you explore our site you will find that our mission is consistent with the Institute’s mission of providing leadership, advancing innovation, and providing an ethical and well-managed administration.
As Georgia Tech strives to provide the state of Georgia with the scientific and technological knowledge base, innovation, and workforce it needs to shape a prosperous and sustainable future for its citizens, the Office of Academic Effectiveness will provide the information and technical expertise to assist units at all levels in measuring and improving student learning and outcomes; facilitate continuous improvement of academic and support services at Georgia Tech; develop and disseminate best practices for enabling continuous organizational learning and development; and accumulate, generate, communicate and disseminate institutional information to support assessment of student learning.
In essence, the Georgia Tech Office of Academic Effectiveness exists to help decision-makers make more informed decisions. Through assessment, we facilitate Georgia Tech’s ability to evaluate and demonstrate the effectiveness of the Institute’s initiatives so that decisions truly enable the best opportunities for our students.
