Comments

Revisions are proposed for Standards 3, 4 and 5 in the 2017 ACEND Accreditation Standards.  These revisions can be viewed in track changes in the standards documents at www.eatrightpro.org/2017Standards.  ACEND values your comments on these changes.  This survey will remain open until December 4, 2017.  

* 1. Several minor changes are suggested for Standard 3 including combining RE 3.3 and 3.4, evaluating all ACEND-required objectives based on an average of the previous 3 years (as is done with exam pass rate) and slight changes in wording to be more definitive (i.e. replace "are expected to take" to "take").

Please provide comments on the suggested changes for Standard 3.

* 2. Standard 4 was modified slightly to clarify that data on ACEND‐required objectives are to be collected annually by programs, targets set for objectives must be met and program changes are made to improve outcomes for objectives not met.

Please provide comments on the suggested changes for Standard 4.

* 3. Required Elements 5.1 and 5.2 are being reversed so the curriculum requirements are discussed prior to the curriculum map. No wording changes are being made to either RE.

Please provide comments on the suggested changes for Standard 5.

* 4. Please provide any additional comments about the 2017 ACEND Accreditation Standards.
