Faculty that buy into the process and remain engaged beyond the CAEP review process.

You’ve been tasked with your EPP’s CAEP review, but you don’t know where to start.

You’re not a full-time assessment and accreditation professional, and you have your hands full with your faculty workload already.

You’re short on both knowledge of the process and time to accomplish it.
The unknowns are intimidating, you’re stressed about finding the time to figure it all out, and you’re unsure you’ll have the support you need from the other faculty.

Getting your EPP accredited by CAEP shouldn’t be a painful process.

A partner you can trust

I understand how much you have on your plate as a faculty member in charge of your EPP’s CAEP review, and it can be difficult to even know where to start.

As an experienced CAEP reviewer, I provide educational preparation providers (EPPs) an outside resource with an insider’s perspective on the CAEP review process, to help you get your program across the finish line with confidence, ease, and as few AFIs or Stipulations as possible.

It's never too late

Get help during any part of the CAEP Review Process

Even if your EPP has already begun it’s CAEP Review Process, it’s not too late to bring in extra help. If the review process has become too arduous to be compatible with your workload or has become otherwise overwhelming, Educational Assurance is here for you!

Here are ways Educational Assurance can assist and support you during each phase of the CAEP Review Process:

1. Self-Study Report (SSR)

You will submit a self-study report (SSR), stating the evidence with which you meet each standard, about 12-18 months before your site visit. This will include a narrative for each standard, plus evidence of how you meet each standard.

How Educational Assurance Can Help:
  • Reviewing the SSR you’ve already compiled, create the SSR with you, or author it for you
  • Perform a SWOT analysis of your overall submission, creating an inventory of evidence you already have and making recommendations on evidence you may need to create or collect
  • Review of EPP-created evidence for sufficiency based on CAEP criteria

2. Formative Feedback Report (FFR) and Addendum

CAEP reviewers read your narrative, assess it for compliance, and send a Formative Feedback Report (FFR) to the school. The report will list their recommendations for an Areas For Improvements (AFIs), or Stipulations.

Your EPP can respond again with an Addendum, a narrative and evidence respondent to what the reviewers have requested.  

How Educational Assurance Can Help:
  • Having been a reviewer, I can interpret the review team’s feedback and identify priorities for your EPP
  • Create a strategy and action plan for you to address the issues, in order to provide all evidence needed to appease the reviewers

3. Site Visit

A team of reviewers will visit your site, either in-person or virtually, for a series of meetings lasting 2-3 days, during which time they will review your program. 

How Educational Assurance Can Help:
  • Using my experience as a CAEP reviewer, I can help you to focus on the most important issues that will need to be addressed during the visit.
  • Develop a strategy to highlight the strengths of your program for the reviewers
  • Prepare you for what to expect during the on-site review process and how to position your EPP in the best light
  • If necessary, assist in crafting a rejoinder to address your review team’s final recommendations
