CCE Conducts Study to Assess its Standards
The Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE) has started the process of studying the validity and reliability of its Standards for Chiropractic Institutions (Standards), and assessing the accreditation process for chiropractic institutions. This study will have two phases. Phase I will assess the validity of the Standards as they relate to the functions of CCE, and will assess the validity of the Manual of Operations as a tool to assist the institutions in providing evidence that they are complying with the Standards.
Phase II is still in development, and will evaluate the validity and reliability of aspects of the accreditation process (institutional self-study process, the site team visitations, commission proceedings, etc.).
The survey results should be available in late 1992 with a final report completed in the spring of 1993.
