TEAC has revised its policy on public performance disclosure (Policy XI) in response to a newly instituted standard of the Council for Higher Education Accreditation demanding that accreditors require the programs and institutions they accredit to report program performance data. TEAC requests that institutions post a link to the Summary of the Case (now on the TEAC website at www.teac.org/membership/teac-members/) on their website along with links to such other performance assessment summaries as they determine appropriate (including websites reporting Title II data). For full information of the revised policy, see TEAC Public Performance Disclosure Policy XI Update. (Click here to view full document.)
The TEAC Board of Directors revised TEAC’s policies relating to the length of accreditation terms so that, beginning with accreditation decisions made in 2012, programs that submit an Inquiry Brief and satisfy TEAC’s Quality Principles will be awarded accreditation for seven years (instead of the former accreditation terms of five years and ten years). Five-year terms of initial accreditation will continue to be awarded to programs that satisfy Quality Principles II and III in an Inquiry Brief Proposal.
