Assessment Resources

One of the pillars to success at Oklahoma Baptist University is the ongoing assessment process.


Oklahoma Baptist University uses WEAVE online, a web-based application, for academic assessment and operational assessment, as well as strategic planning.

Authorized users may access WEAVE online.

If you have not used WEAVE in a while or if this is a different computer, it may ask you for an abbreviation. The abbreviation is "OKBU". You must then click "Continue" to move to the next step of logging in.

Your login is your e-mail address. If you do not remember your password, you will be best served to simply click "reset password." Even if the Assessment Office resets your password, you will need to change it again, so doing it yourself simplifies the process. Check your e-mail for a temporary password. If you do not receive an e-mail shortly, then contact the Assessment Office for assistance.
