Guide to Accreditation, 2012. [December 2011 Revision]
Teacher Education Accreditation Council
The Teacher Education Accreditation Council's (TEAC's) "Guide to Accreditation" is primarily for the faculty, staff, and administrators of TEAC member programs. It is designed for use in preparing for both initial and continuing accreditation. Program personnel should understand and accept all the components of the TEAC accreditation process before entering into it. Everyone in the program who is responsible for some or all parts of the program's accreditation (including annual reports) is encouraged to read and use this guide. The goal in writing the guide was to make each step of the process clear and to make the accreditation process itself transparent. For example, throughout, this guide explains the rationale behind the process as well as each step. Also included are details about formative evaluation, the audit, and the accreditation decision. Because this guide spells out in detail what is expected from the members and how all the steps in the process fit together, TEAC auditors and members of the Accreditation Panel and Accreditation Committee should also find the volume useful. Appended are: (1) List of Tables, Figures, and Formats; and (2) TEAC Glossary. An index is included. Individual chapters contain footnotes and references. (Contains 8 tables and 1 figure.)
