Born of Higher Education
Our WEAVEonline software was born of higher education in the context of accreditation, and remains true to its roots. For almost a decade, universities and colleges have used our software to align program- and institutional- level quality improvement processes that enhance learning. The satisfaction of our members is reflected in our almost 90% retention rate since inception. As we have worked to fulfill our mission of enriching education through better assessment and planning, and to assist our member institutions, our offerings have grown.
Today, we provide comprehensive services including:
- WEAVEonline Assessment and Planning Management Software
- Consulting Services
- Professional learning resources and opportunities
- World-class Technology
When you are ready, our team invites you to contact us so that one of our assessment experts can discuss how WEAVEonline software and consulting can benefit your institution. Even institutions that are not users of WEAVEonline software can benefit from our assessment and accreditation consulting.
Our team of higher education professionals has close to 100 years of combined experience as faculty members and administrators. We have led on-campus assessment, strategic planning, and accreditation efforts; we have served as institutional effectiveness evaluators; and we have assisted campuses across the country to implement assessment, strategic planning, and reaffirmation projects.
Our team of technical professionals also includes over 50 years of experience in web services, application design, software development, and user interface engineering.
Our history is an important part of who we are. In 2001, a small team of people at Virginia Commonwealth University started putting together a way to manage assessment data to support regional accreditation requirements. After Virginia Commonwealth University was successful in its reaffirmation of accreditation, team members presented the approach at a number of state, regional, and national conferences. Several of those attending the presentations expressed interest in using WEAVEonline.
The small team worked with the VCU Tech Transfer office to see what would be possible. With the urging of a faculty member whose senior class took on investigating the market, VCU began licensing the software. A higher education source now offered a higher education solution for assessment management.
After three years, when WEAVEonline became too large to remain inside the university, James Farrelly entered the picture and formed Centrieva Corporation in May 2006 to exclusively market, license, and further develop WEAVEonline. As the familiar line goes, the rest is history.
