Developing an Accreditation Process for a Computing Faculty with Focus on the IS Program
Alghazzawi, Daniyal; Fardoun, Habib
Journal of Case Studies in Accreditation and Assessment, v3 Feb 2014
The 3-year migration of the computing faculty for three undergraduate programs from ad hoc teaching to three accredited programs is the focus of this paper. This journey started after numerous international accreditation organizations were surveyed, and ABET was chosen as the faculty's target. In this paper, the timelines and processes for covering missing data, persuading instructors to collaborate, involving students in the process, and building an assessment model are discussed. Evidence from one of the three programs, the Information Systems program, is provided. In addition, during the 3 years, an accreditation system called AIMS was developed using Oracle to reduce the cost of writing numerous reports in different formats. This system aided the faculty in receiving accreditation from ABET for three programs in addition to other accreditation systems at low cost.
