To prepare for the site visit, there are five key tasks that you the candidate will need to complete:

  1. Set date for site visit
  2. Finalize agenda
  3. Announce/ introduce accreditation process to key stakeholders
  4. Help CAPRSS with travel logistics
  5. Set up Resource Room

The Site Visit Workplan Template will help you to breakdown those tasks into “To do’s.”

Prior to the site visit, the Peer Review Team will review and comment on the candidate’s (a) Organizational Profile, (b) Welcome Walk Through, and (c ) Accreditation Self Study, along with (d) supporting documents. They will be looking for evidence of how well the organization meets each of the standards and criteria, and will be looking for the evidence to be:

reliable the evidence can be consistently interpreted
current the information supports an assessment of the current status of the institution
verifiable the meaning assigned to the evidence can be corroborated, and the information can be replicated
coherent the evidence is orderly, logical, and consistent with other patterns of evidence presented
observable the evidence is based on observable data and information
relevant the evidence directly addresses the requirement or standard under consideration
representative the evidence is reflective a larger body of evidence and not an isolated case
