Serving as a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) Evaluator: Notes from a Novice
Silva, David J.
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v33 n8 p626-641 2009
For those seeking ways by which they might serve more knowledgeably and effectively as members of their institution's leadership team--particularly when it comes to issues of institutional assessment and effectiveness--the author strongly recommends active participation in any aspect of the accreditation/reaffirmation process, including serving as a member of an accreditation or reaffirmation on-site review committee. The author relates his experiences as a first-time Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) reviewer, more specifically, as the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) evaluator.
