Section 1: Directory Information
Please review and complete each item
Section 2: Accreditation Activities
Please review and complete each item as appropriate. If your host center participated in an accreditation review in 2018, please click “Not Applicable” for questions 2-4 and type “Not Applicable” for questions 5-6.
Section 3: Center Accreditation Needs/Concerns
This section gives the center an opportunity for consultation if there are any questions or concerns.
Section 4: Completion Rates
ACPE Standards require that over a 10-year period, 75% of students who complete orientation go on to receive credit for that unit. Please indicate if your center meets this threshold. You may use the following two sections of the form to determine your calculations.
For the sections on enrollment numbers, please include units that CONCLUDED between January 1, 2018 and December 31, 2018. If you began a unit later in the year that will not end until 2019, DO NOT include those students in your 2018 numbers.
Total number of units offered: This includes the total number of units that concluded in 2018, i.e. a spring, summer, and fall unit would be three units. This figure does not consider student enrollment.
Total number of distinct students in your program (count each student only once for the year, not per unit). For residency students, please count them only once during the current year.
Total number of Students who ENROLLED: This number indicates those students who completed orientation; a student who withdraws or is dismissed after orientation will receive “0” credit. In the case of a residency where there is not an orientation for each unit, count students for each subsequent unit in which they begin.
Total number of students who RECEIVED CREDIT: This number indicates the number of students who completed the unit and receive either .5 or 1 credit for the unit.
Total number of students who DID NOT RECEIVE CREDIT: This number indicates the number of students who withdrew or were dismissed after orientation and received “0” credit.
Percentage of students who ENROLLED AND RECEIVED CREDIT: This number reflects the completion rate of officially enrolled students. To determine this number, divide the number of students who received credit by the number of students who enrolled, e.g. if 10 students were enrolled, but only five receive credit, the overall completion rate is 50%. This represents the information for the YEAR 2018 only, which will then inform the 10-year threshold requirement.
