MSA Workshop - October 4, 2006
FE’s specify characteristics that constitute/encompass the standard.
Institutions/evaluators use elements, within context of M, to demonstrate/determine compliance the standard.
Institutions utilize FE and Standards, as guide to SS.
FE specified for each standard have inherent relationship to each other, and collectively constitute compliance.
Neither institution nor evaluators should use the FE as checklist.
Both institution/evaluators must consider totality created by FE and other relevant institutional information or analysis.
Where C/U does not demonstrate evidence of a FE, it may show through alternative inf/analysis that it meets standard.Fundamental Elements
1. Are its Mission, Goals and objectives proper, broad enough, clear, accepted, measurable, achievable?
2. Are they appropriate for this community, for the population served?
3. Are the programs and services offered consistent with them?
4. Are they designed to reach them?
5. Is there evidence that we are reaching them?
6. Do they have the human, physical, financial resources to achieve them and continue to do so in the next planning cycle?
Goals which complement and flow from the mission, indicate how the mission will be achieved. Thus, they are critical.
There are three types of Goals: (Kells, 1983, 65.)
1. Input Goals: describe the type of human resources, students, & other resources that will characterize the institution;
2. Process Goals: describe then environment and types of programs & services offered to promote the mission;
3. Outcomes goals: state expectations of what is to be achieved or produced as a result.
