  • McKinley Survey (on web)

    • Strengths

      • NCATE is widely recognized as a leader

      • NCATE is committed to improving accreditation

      • NCATE staff and resources provide value

    • Opportunities

      • Institutions perceive value as less than costs

      • Institutions want better change management and more support

      • Inconsistent experiences with BOE teams

        • 23% were dissatisfied with teams

        • Differing political and philosophical agendas

        • Satisfied with performance of their teams, but worried because one day they “may not be so lucky”

      • Dissatisfaction with Program Review process

      • Competition

    • UAB decisions and the exhibit list ranked highly

Boe update6
BOE Update

  • Collegiality

    • Share any concerns with chair as the visit progresses

    • Make requests for documentation through chairs – ensure that requests are reasonable (see NCATE’s List of Suggested Exhibits)

    • Please do not make personal preferences for food and beverage known, unless related to medical needs

    • In interviews, remember that the visit is objective process based on the standards

Boe update7
BOE Update

  • Preparation for the visit

    • Review BOE Update

    • Complete the planning Instrument

    • Be clear on the use of National Recognition Reports and other materials from program review (See article in fall 08 BOE Update)

    • Try not to print materials onsite

    • Visit the institution’s website, particularly for the materials related to your standard

Boe update8
BOE Update

  • BOE Report

    • Narrative should be concise and comprehensive

      • Use multiple sources

      • Address all aspects of the elements

      • See BOE Report Sample in Resources section of AIMS

    • Overall Assessment of Standard

      • UAB still uses this aspect of the report

      • Should summarize standard, mention all elements

    • Strengths should reflect activity at the target level

      • In the past, some strengths reflect acceptable level while others are very vague –

      • See sample strengths on NCATE website and in AIMS (to be posted)
