Unlock Valuable Insights that Power Continuous Improvement

In the competitive landscape of higher education, your program relies upon continuous improvement to keep an edge. However, without adequate insight into your program’s outcomes, your teams would lack the critical information you need to analyze and improve upon program outcomes year after year.

But what is the cost to gather these insights?  If your program is managing student competency development across multiple systems, you’re likely investing significant time and resources to aggregate dissimilar data at the end of each term or in preparation for each accreditation cycle. 

Cut Hidden Costs with a Single System

The good news is that with Tevera, you can cut these hidden costs and augment your insights by centralizing your data in one cohesive system. Rather than laboring over data consolidation and analysis, you’ll have a platform that already has everything you need in one place, including insight-rich reports that tell your student success story to anyone and everyone.

Navigating Accreditation Management

A Dive into Documentation, Evidence Gathering and Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI)

Accreditation management is a multi-faceted process that requires meticulous planning, systematic implementation, and ongoing oversight. Among the myriad of challenges faced by educational institutions during the accreditation process, two stand out as particularly daunting: Documentation & Evidence Gathering and Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI). 

In this blog post, we’ll delve into these two critical areas, uncovering the challenges associated with them, offering viable solutions, and outlining how Tevera simplifies both.

Documentation & Evidence Gathering

Documentation and evidence gathering form the backbone of any accreditation process. This ensures that academic standards, policies, and processes within an institution are consistently upheld. 

By compiling a comprehensive record of the institution’s practices, achievements, and areas of improvement, documentation serves as a testament to the institution’s commitment to maintaining the highest educational standards. Furthermore, it offers accrediting bodies a tangible insight into the institution’s operations, allowing them to assess its eligibility for accreditation. 

Without proper documentation, it’s almost impossible to showcase an institution’s competencies and adherence to stipulated standards. Thus, comprehensive and accurate documentation stands as a non-negotiable pillar in the pursuit of accreditation.

Challenges

Challenges to accreditation management, especially documentation management and continuous quality improvement, are numerous, but these three might be the toughest:

Volume & Complexity

Accreditation requires a vast amount of documentation, which can be overwhelming given the complexity of topics covered.

Cross-Departmental Coordination

Gathering evidence often involves liaising with various departments, making the task even more challenging.

Timeliness & Accuracy

Accreditation bodies demand not just volume but timely and accurate documentation, which institutions often find challenging to produce.

Solutions

To address these challenges, a few solutions are often recommended by institutions that have successfully navigated their own accreditation processes:

Dedicate a CQI Team

A team solely focused on CQI can plan, execute, and measure quality improvement initiatives without being encumbered by day-to-day operations.

Institution-Wide Feedback Platforms

Utilizing technology to solicit feedback from students, faculty, and other stakeholders can streamline the feedback process, ensuring that all voices are heard and considered.

Outcome Metrics & Dashboards

Developing specific metrics to measure the outcomes of CQI initiatives can be complemented with visual dashboards. This not only helps in internal monitoring but also provides tangible proof of improvement to accrediting bodies.
