PROGRAM RESPONSE TO NOTICE OF PROBATION FROM CAPTE:
The two areas in which we need to demonstrate compliance to CAPTE involve program assessment from an employer or other outside stakeholder to evaluate 1) curriculum and, 2) graduate achievement of program goals. The surveys used for this assessment have been developed and will be deployed promptly with data collected and analyzed as per the assessment plan previously submitted and acknowledged by CAPTE. Completion of this last assessment process will bring us into full compliance with the accreditation standards and will be completed prior to the due date for the next compliance report to CAPTE, March 1, 2019.
