Accreditation for Armed Forces Educational Institutions.
Tarquine, Robert Blaine
The report established the need for educational accreditation and consolidates the various means of achieving accreditation that are available to the Armed Forces, into one accessible reference. The scope of each accrediting method is presented in detail, allowing educational officials to evaluate the methods in respect to their individual objectives. Sufficient data is included to direct officials in the initial procedures for obtaining accreditation. Emphasis is also placed on the extent the Armed Forces are concerned with accreditation by citing institutions that have been accredited or institutions that are working towards it. Special consideration has been given to the United States Army Materiel Command Intern Training Center at Red River Depot. All of the initial procedures to achieve accreditation have been proposed for the Center. (Author)
