Section 3, "Panel Training and Pre-visit Meeting," discusses the purpose, Panel training, and the pre-visit meeting. Section 4 describes "The On-site Visit." Section 5 describes "The Post-visit Meeting." Section 6 describes "The Faculty of Education's Rejoinder." Section 7, "The Accreditation Recommendation," discusses language for the accreditation recommendation and the Accreditation Committee's accreditation decision. Section 8, "Timeline," presents important timelines for 1 year. Eight appendixes offer: Standards of Practice for the Teaching Profession; Ethical Standards for the Teaching Profession; exhibits room guidelines; accreditation report outline; programs awarded "Initial Accreditation Granted with Conditions" and "Initial Accreditation Not Granted"; Accreditation Panel's schedule: a sample outline; Panel training skills sheets; and a template for report writing.
