5 Connect with NCATE: on Twitter: @ncate on Facebook: facebook.com/ncate.org Elizabeth Vilky Accreditation Associate Whether institutions submit programs to a SPA (AMLE) or to the state for review depends on the NCATE/State Partnership Some states require SPA review while some require state review. Others allow the institution to choose.

15 Connect with NCATE: on Twitter: @ncate on Facebook: facebook.com/ncate.org Elizabeth Vilky Accreditation Associate Option A- Current Process Current process: the program selects 6 to 8 key assessments required of all candidates. Institution must submit a minimum of six assessments, unless the SPA specifies more than six required assessments Institution may submit additional assessments when SPA does not specify all eight assessments Five specific types of assessments are required by all SPAs

18 Connect with NCATE: on Twitter: @ncate on Facebook: facebook.com/ncate.org Elizabeth Vilky Accreditation Associate Option C-Continuing Recognition Designed to reduce the documentation requirements for programs already nationally recognized. Can be used by programs that were previously nationally recognized using the 6 to 8 key assessment model (started process in Fall 04) and whose standards have not changed since the last submission. Must submit current data on all assessments. Focus on Section Vself study and continuous improvement

19 Connect with NCATE: on Twitter: @ncate on Facebook: facebook.com/ncate.org Elizabeth Vilky Accreditation Associate Option D A program can conduct validity and reliability studies of its assessments in lieu of other program report evidence requirements – Must seek permission from NCATE before pursuing this option

23 Connect with NCATE: on Twitter: @ncate on Facebook: facebook.com/ncate.org Elizabeth Vilky Accreditation Associate For units undergoing accreditation for the first time, programs are expected to be able to include in their program reports at least one year of data on all assessments in order to be eligible for full national recognition.

24 Connect with NCATE: on Twitter: @ncate on Facebook: facebook.com/ncate.org Elizabeth Vilky Accreditation Associate Enrollment Programs Low-Enrollment Programs: The option to defer low-enrollment programs (defined as 5 or fewer completers in a program in the last 3 years combined) will continue until we transition into CAEP. At that time, we will determine if the new option, CAEP Program Review with Feedback, will meet the needs for review of low-enrollment programs. Programs are NOT required to defer program review due to low enrollment.
