How do I get a Baseline account?

To request a Baseline by Campus Labs account, please contact ATAS at or 509-313-3972 or stop by and see us in Suite 303 of the Foley Center Library. To set up your account, we only need your Gonzaga email address and department name. We will send you log-in instructions once your account has been set up.

There are no limits to the number of users allowed, and each department, program, school/college, or division can have individual accounts for users to access shared data.


Why do I want a Baseline account?

There are many reasons to have a Baseline account!

  • Assessment Toolkit: Surveys, Rubrics, Student Response Sessions, Assessment Webinars & Resources
  • Custom Surveys - create/edit surveys yourself or have Campus Labs do the work for you
  • Mass Mailing System - allows you to send reminders to only the survey recipients who have not yet opened the survey
  • Evaluations and Reports - collect student feedback and export data into many forms, including Word, PDF, SPSS and Excel
  • Student Response Sessions - conduct formative assessment, get real-time feedback, allows for audience visualization, a great alternative to "clickers"
  • Rubrics - access and edit existing templates or create your own electronic rubric
  • Library of Shared Projects - access survey projects used by many other higher education institutions (no need to recreate the wheel!)
  • Assessment Resources - The Baseline Support site offers resources such as webinars, forms/documents, and frequently asked questions, as well as an “Assessment Lab” of best practices and resources for every step of the assessment cycle.

How much does an account cost?

Free to individuals and departments! This is because Gonzaga already has a paid enterprise-wide license agreement with Campus Labs.
