C. Teaching and Learning: Evaluation and Improvement
- Instructors (excluding for this requirement teaching assistants enrolled in a graduate program and supervised by faculty) have the authority for the assignment of grades. (This requirement allows for collective responsibility, as when a faculty committee has the authority to override a grade on appeal.)
- The institution refrains from the transcription of credit from other institutions or providers that it will not apply to its own programs.
- The institution has formal and current written agreements for managing any internships and clinical placements included in its programs.
- A predominantly or solely single-purpose institution in fields that require licensure for practice is also accredited by or is actively in the process of applying to a relevant accreditor for each field, as sufficient for licensure, if such a recognized accreditor exists.
- Instructors communicate course requirements to students in writing and in a timely manner.
- Institutional data on assessment of student learning are accurate and address the full range of students who enroll.
- Institutional data on student retention, persistence, and completion are accurate and address the full range of students who enroll.
