For its accredited units, the AAFCS-CFA further clarified and strengthened its requirements for public reporting and adopted the following Student Performance/Achievement Policy:
Each Fall academic term, the Unit shall update the public reporting of reliable and accurate aggregate student performance/achievement data and other outcome measures. For each of the programs specifically accredited by AAFCS-CFA, the number of graduates from the Unit, graduation rates, retention rates, and performance on national exams for the last three (3) years are required. Units are encouraged to provide other data that are routinely collected and reported such as job placement rates in the field, post-baccalaureate internship placements, graduate school placement, etc.
To ensure consistency and clarity in reporting of data, accredited units will annually complete Form D: Annual Public Reporting of Student Achievement. Form D should be submitted to the Director of Accreditation and be accessible by the public from a link/tab on the homepage of the Unit website. Data must be updated and submitted annually by the 3rd week of the Fall academic term. The link/tab to the form should be labeled as “Student Performance & Achievement.”
