PROFESSIONAL FAQS - Annual Report
For the Annual Report Section 42, it asks for compliance in the Standards sections. In the CAATE Standards the Personnel Section, Standard 13 requires programs to have a three year aggregate first-time pass rating of 70% or better. So if for the reporting period the institution does not meet that rating then they should mark that as non-compliant?
Yes, if the program director feels the program is non-compliant with any of the Standards, the PD should select “No” for the appropriate section. A pop-up window will appear requesting an explanation of a “No” response.
VOLUNTARY WITHDRAWAL FAQS
Programs Voluntarily Withdrawing for Standard 11: Will they have to continue to submit a Progress Report even though the program mathematically will not meet the 70%?
Yes. It is expected that programs will remain in compliance with ALL Standards during the withdrawal process. Programs that have non-compliances with the Standards will be required to complete Progress Reports on the noncompliant Standards until the withdrawal date.
