General Requirements and Minimum Standards.
This publication provides the General Requirements and Minimum Standards developed by the National Court Reporters Association's Council on Approved Student Education (CASE). They are the same for all court reporter education programs, whether an institution is applying for approval for the first time or for a new grant of approval. The first section outlines requirements that an institution's court reporter education program shall satisfy: eligibility; initial application procedures; reevaluation procedures; annual report procedures; major changes; fee schedule; CASE actions; appeals procedures; and complaint procedures. The second section contains minimum standards for these areas: educational program, with the institutional standards and outcomes outlined for these courses: machine shorthand, keyboarding, English, law and legal terminology, court reporting procedures, technology, current events, and internship; academic staff; library resource; business and professional standards; graduation and awards; and catalog requirements. Appendixes include a description of evening program and courses and their relationship to the approval process; sample lesson plans; elements of a syllabus and a syllabus model; timetable for reevaluations; and fee schedule.
