The score sheets list each of the standards and underlying criteria. The score sheets have two dimensions that reviewers rank: (1) “Has It” and (2) “Uses It”, which mirror the scales used in the Accreditation Self Assessment. The two dimensions have been designed to capture the “structure” of the service (Has It ), and the “process” (Uses It), to gauge overall conformance. Often many organizations and programs have good policy and procedure but do not use it; others have very basic policy and procedures but excellent practice. The strongest reviews will have high ratings in both dimensions.
The scoring systems for the criteria for the standards are “0”: none; “1”: moderate conformance “2”: excellent conformance.
