1 S TANDARD VIII – E VALUATION C OMPLETION AND P LACEMENT 1 Standard VIII-E Standard II Standard III Standard IV Standard V Standard VI Standard VII Standard I

2 S TANDARD VIII - E VALUATION E. Completion and Placement: Written policies and procedures are followed that provide an effective means to regularly assess, document, and validate the quality of the education and training services provided relative to completion and placement rates, as applicable. Completion: The number of participants who complete the programs and courses in which they enroll is consistent with the benchmarks established by the Accrediting Commission (67%). 2

3 S TANDARD VIII - E VALUATION E. Completion and Placement (continued): Placement: Institutions offering vocational programs provide job placement assistance to graduates and document the results to enhance the effectiveness of the training services provided. The quality of such programs is validated by positive training-related outcomes consistent with the benchmarks established by the Accrediting Commission (70%). 3

4 K EY P OINTS … Vocational institutions must use Document 28.1 to track completion and placement for all programs. ACCET Benchmarks: Completion = 67% Placement = 70% 4

5 C ONSIDER THIS … 5

7 U NDERSTANDING AND U SING ACCET D OCUMENT 28.1 Report all programs on separate 28.1s. This includes reporting full-time and part-time (and day / evening) programs, as well as IDL programs separately. The compilation of completion and placement data must be tracked by the scheduled graduation date (month/year) as a cohort, not the start or placement date. Transfers In/Out – If a student’s graduation date changes (LOA, course retake, etc.) they are transferred out of their original cohort and transferred in to the new expected graduation month cohort. 7

8 U NDERSTANDING AND U SING ACCET D OCUMENT 28.1 Completion: Column A vs. Column B Waivers - A student may be counted as a placement waiver if they sign an attestation indicating why they are waiving placement. Only 15% of those Column A graduates can be counted as waivers – Doc will note any adjustments. Be prepared to discuss and/or document mitigating circumstances. 8

9 T YPES OF P LACEMENTS Employment is considered “training-related” if it correlates to the programs’ stated vocational objectives. Non-training-related positions will be disallowed. General/Full-time Part-time Temporary Self-employed Continuing Employment/Upgrade as a Placement Self-assessed Progress 9

10 M INIMUM I NFORMATION R EQUIRED FOR P LACEMENT Name of student Completion date Program name Employment information:  Employment start date  Job title and/or description of placement  Name of employer, mailing address, telephone number and address  Employer contact person Documentation of self-employment, part-time employment, temporary employment, continuous employment 10

11 W HAT THE ON - SITE TEAM WILL LOOK FOR … A team will verify that the students you report as completers have in fact met minimum attendance and academic requirements. If final transcripts/attendance records do NOT indicate such, these “completions” will be disallowed by the team. The team will verify documentation of waivers. All waivers reported on the 28.1 must be documented, including student signature and date. The team will verify placements by calling employers and/or students. The team may disallow placements, thereby adjusting the program’s placement rate for a cohort (and therefore for the entire year), based on any of the following: placements deemed by the team to be non- training-related; graduate not employed by the company for at least 30 days, lack of student attestation. Use the “transfer in/transfer out” columns judiciously. And remember that a student who does not complete the program is a drop, not a “transfer out.” 11

12 L ET ’ S PRACTICE … You are the owner/director of a vocational, Title-IV eligible school with a single main campus (no branches, no auxiliary classrooms). Your school offers only one program – Medical Assistant, a 720-hour (9 month) program. Your school is scheduled for an on-site evaluation visit in February 2014; therefore, you will prepare Document 28.1 for the calendar year Please complete Document 28.1 for two cohorts – the groups of students scheduled to graduate in September 2012 and the group of students scheduled to graduate in October Use the information on the next two pages. 12
