Guide to the TEAC Audit, 2011-2012
Teacher Education Accreditation Council
This guide to the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) audit is primarily for the faculty, staff, and administrators of TEAC member programs preparing for the audit of their "Inquiry Brief" or "Inquiry Brief Proposal." It is designed for use in preparing for the audits that are part of both initial and continuing accreditation. It is a companion to the comprehensive "Guide to TEAC Accreditation," and it complements the "Handbook for TEAC Auditors." Throughout each step of the accreditation process, and especially during the audit, TEAC and program faculty should maintain open and frequent communication. For this reason, the goal of this guide is to make each step of the process clear and to make the audit process itself transparent. The guide has two main parts. The first part of the guide describes the TEAC audit in detail. It outlines the particular responsibilities of the program, TEAC staff, and the auditors, and explains each phase of the audit. This section addresses a frequent question from members, "What do the auditors do?" Part one closes with an explanation of the audit report and the program's response to it, including samples of the documents the auditors use in conducting the audit and arriving at the audit opinion. The second part of the guide covers practical matters such as schedule and costs. In a Q&A format, this section addresses the most frequent questions members ask when they are about to enter the audit process. The section closes with a checklist that may be helpful in preparing for the audit.
