Who We Are

Purpose and Mission

The Virginia Assessment Group (VAG) promotes quality higher education through assessment and institutional effectiveness practices in all Commonwealth, post-secondary institutions. VAG serves as a network for communication and collaboration among institutions of higher education, state and federal agencies, and accreditation bodies. VAG offers professional development opportunities and serves as a forum for the exchange of ideas.

We strive to:

  • Provide faculty, staff, and administrators with information and professional development in assessment and institutional effectiveness practices through conferences, workshops, and seminars;

  • Serve as a network for those individuals specifically involved in assessment through the VAG website, newsletters, and seminars;

  • Promote scholarship of assessment and expand the foundation of knowledge underlying effective learning, teaching, and service;

  • To support a culture of improvement by serving as a forum for ongoing discussion of institutional and program effectiveness with key constituencies.
