AERO supports program improvement by providing assessment data reports to program faculty for review. AERO creates assessment data reports based on data collected through VIA by Watermark, an online assessment system, embedded in CEHD Blackboard course sections.

As of fall 2021, AERO will focus primarily on assessment data collection through VIA and will no longer provide weblinks to Tk20. Students and faculty will still have access to prior submissions and data in TK20. AERO is working diligently to provide training and support for all students and faculty as we complete this transition. Below you will find the latest versions of our instructional videos and PowerPoint slides for students and faculty. Please email us anytime with your questions or concerns, VIAhelp@gmu.edu.
