Academic Accreditation and COAPRT Program Visitor Training: A Symbol of Academic Excellence - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
Our program was accredited by NRPA 10 years ago and switched to SAF (Society of American Foresters). We decided to shift to COAPRT and are working on our curriculum updates and changes, which will take one year to get approved by our university. Do we need to wait until our new curriculum gets officially approved or we can start to apply without the official approval?
Great tutorial (less than 2 min) of what to expect in Submittable: I've been added as a reviewer. What's next? https://submittable.help/en/articles/3935413-i-ve-been-added-as-a-reviewer-what-s-next
Jinyang, if you are the same program that you were back 10 years ago and your program is recognized by your university, you can send in your application for COAPRT. If you program will be considered as a new program on your campus, you will have to wait until your program has been around for three years (standard 1.01) before you would be eligible for COAPRT accreditation. If it is just a change in your curriculum, you can start your accreditation application. It takes about a year by the time your visit comes around, so your curriculum would be approved by your campus at that time.
Maridith, the program is the same. Thanks.
With the student sample artifacts as part of the 7.0 series, are there supposed to be two student samples, one "good" and one "poor"? In the case where you only have good samples, can you include two good ones?
Julie, the visitors may ask to look at examples of student work and how it is evaluated. It is your choice how you want to represent student work.
Julie, remember that the 7.0 standards are looking at student learning outcomes (SLOs) and how programs are allowing students to learn the information, how it is evaluated, whether or not the SLO is being met, and how the program is closing the loop. Because the data is aggregated, individual student work isn't so much the focus.
My indicates it is recording.
Is there a training for programs undergoing review?
Yes this program is being recorded and will be posted to the COAPRT website within a few days. here: https://accreditationcouncil.org/Accreditation-Resources/Training-Opportunities
