This is a first draft of the Show Cause Report, composed of the Institutional Self-Evaluation and Closure Report, due to ACCJC on March 15, 2013, based on the compilation of templates completed by the accreditation workgroups.
§ In general, the “Actionable Improvement Plans” are still in progress for all standards.
§ We are also still working on developing a style guide in line with that of ACCJC for purposes of consistency in matters such as capitalization, the placement of references to evidence, the elimination of passive voice, nomenclature, etc. We will address the current inconsistencies in later drafts.
§ In the next round of editing we plan to incorporate feedback from reviewers, create consistent references to evidence, reduce redundancy, make the descriptions more concise where possible, incorporate exemplars where needed and as appropriate, clean up all formatting, and ensure that the relationship of Distance Education across the Standards is appropriately described.
§ The final Show Cause Report will include a glossary of acronyms.
§ This replaces the preliminary draft circulated to the Accreditation Steering Committee on January 14, 2013.
