Member Webinar: Writing the Annual Report

November 29 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern

Join this webinar to walk through the template and timeline for Annual Reports and preview how the report informs ongoing evidence-based planning and improvement efforts.

To maintain accreditation status, all accredited providers complete and submit an Annual Report beginning the calendar year following their initial AAQEP accreditation decision (see Annual Report Policy). In addition, AAQEP encourages other members to complete the report, both to begin building the record for their program relative to AAQEP’s standards and to inform aggregate reporting by AAQEP on common indicators across the membership.

Regardless of whether you're filing a full Annual Report, all AAQEP regular members need to complete the annual Membership Update Form (one per institution/organization).

Questions? Contact Sungti Hsu or your AAQEP liaison.

Annual Report FAQs

For detailed information, please see Guidance on Completing the 2022 Annual Report.

A: Although you're encouraged to file one earlier, your first required Annual Report is due the calendar year following your initial accreditation decision. That due date is listed on your action report and in this list of accredited programs.

A: The fall reporting period is designed to encourage your timely examination of prior-year's data in order to maintain successful practices and plan for improvement.

A: No. Because Part I of the report will be posted publicly, please follow institutional and state practices regarding disaggregation. While AAQEP encourages disaggregation of data in self-study reports, for the Annual Report, it’s better to follow the Title II reporting protocols regarding small ns.

A: Your response to the question regarding completion rates can be disaggregated in whatever way gives the clearest information to readers, including prospective students. The format of the report also allows for brief commentary to help readers understand the context.

A: Yes, at your discretion. It is common for working professionals to seek additional certifications or endorsements, but to wait for a desirable position to become open before using the new credential. You can also explain any rationale for how you “count” employment rates in this indicator of Table 2.

A: A separate review will mean a separate Quality Assurance Report for those programs, and each QAR needs its own Annual Report. You only need to report on your already-accredited programs for the time being (and completing a separate report for the not-yet-accredited ones is optional).

In the Membership Update Form, however, please aggregate all 2021-2022 completers for both your already-accredited and your not-yet-accredited programs.
