Copyright © 2014 by ABET 16 ABET requires a preliminary Self-Study Report from programs seeking initial accreditation that are housed in institutions which currently have no ABET-accredited programs in that same commission. A review of this preliminary Self-Study Report - which is called the Readiness Review - will help ABET determine whether an institution is ready to submit a formal Request for Evaluation (RFE) for that program. READINESS REVIEWS
Copyright © 2014 by ABET 17 A program may receive one of three non- binding recommendations as the outcome of a Readiness Review; A recommendation to submit the Request for Evaluation in the immediate upcoming accreditation review cycle; A recommendation to postpone the submission unless substantive changes in the Self-Study preparation and documentation are made; or A recommendation not to submit the program in the immediate upcoming accreditation review cycle because it is likely to be rejected. READINESS REVIEWS cont’d
Copyright © 2014 by ABET 18 Programs that complete a Readiness Review and continue in the review process must update their Self-Study Reports for the final Self-Study Report submission which is due July 1 annually. READINESS REVIEWS cont’d
