In order for the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) to be in compliance with requirements of its external recognition body, the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), CAAHEP recently implemented in all of its profession’s Standards, a new requirement in Fair Practices Section V.A.. It requires institutions sponsoring CAAHEP-accredited programs to make program outcomes information available to the public. Each Committee on Accreditation (CoA) has been asked by CAAHEP to specify in policy which outcome(s) programs are required to publish. New language reads as follows:
The sponsor must maintain, and make available to the public, current and consistent summary information about student/graduate achievement that includes the results of one or more of the outcomes assessments required in these Standards.
The CoA-KT has approved the following policy related to reporting requirements for Kinesiotherapy programs:
All Programs should publish in a readily accessible place on their website the student pass rate for the Kinesiotherapy credentialing exam in the previous academic year. The Programs may publish additional outcomes as reported in the Program Directors Annual Report.
