                                   Guidelines for Completing the Self Study Report and Directions for Using the Rubric

I.   A special committee (hereinafter referred to as the “Self Study Committee”) should be convened to initiate, organize and manage the self study process. Membership of the
     committee should be broadly based, with representation from the collegiate community - including administrative leaders (Dean, Associate/Assistant Deans, and Chairs),
     faculty, professional staff, students, alumni, preceptors - and other appropriate members of the profession. Collegiate retreats may be a constructive means by which the self
     study process is both initiated and concluded. The self study process may be facilitated by utilizing subcommittees, each organized with a Chair, to focus upon the following
     major areas of the CCIE Standards: 1. Institutional Organization and Administration; 2. Resources – Financial and Facilities; 3. Students; 4. Faculty and Staff; 5. Curriculum
     and 6. Program Evaluation. The Self Study Committee Chair or Co-Chair and the chairs of the subcommittees should meet regularly during the self study process. Objective
     information and data should be sought and used by the subcommittees in evaluation of the program’s compliance with the Standards. The Self Study Report should be
     developed and reviewed with broad-based input from students, faculty, preceptors, staff and administrators, and these stakeholders should all be aware of the Report and its
     contents. Wherever possible, a staff member of the program should be assigned to process factual and statistical information required by the committee as a whole or by the
     subcommittees. The subcommittees should provide a self-evaluation of the program’s compliance with the Standards and not merely a description of what currently takes
     place.
II. The responsibilities of the Self Study Committee and its Chair or Co-Chairs include:
        coordinating and providing leadership for the self-evaluation
        selecting, orienting and overseeing self study subcommittees
        establishing and maintaining communications with participants in the process, including liaison with university officers
        developing a master timetable for the self study effort, including individualized schedules for each subcommittee
        management of the process, including adherence to the established timetables
        reviewing and coordinating subcommittee reports for unnecessary overlap, inconsistencies, contradictions, and statistical inaccuracies
        assuring that objective information and self-evaluation have been incorporated by the subcommittees
        unifying, synthesizing, and preparing a comprehensive yet succinct Self Study Report

III. The person(s) responsible for the final editing process should be mindful of the need to change neither the thrust nor the context of the various responses and findings. The
     master timetable should provide adequate opportunity for distribution and discussion of the Report by the broad range of stakeholders prior to its forwarding to CCIE and the
     evaluation team members.

IV. Please organize your narrative for the Self Study Report following the order of the Standards provided in this rubric. The Self Study Report should be organized with a title
    page and a table of contents with page numbers, and may include checklists, rubrics and appendices as needed to document compliance with the 2009 CCIE Standards. The
    list of examples of documentation and evidence provided in the rubric are not all-inclusive and the program may provide additional information to demonstrate its compliance
    with each Standard.

    The 2009 CCIE Standards are to be used for the development, evaluation, and self-analysis of postsecondary professional interpreter education programs. They will guide new
    programs in defining policies on entry requirements, curricular goals, faculty selection, teaching methods, and projected student outcomes. For existing programs, the
    Standards provide benchmarks for assessing and enhancing student outcomes, evaluating and updating faculty, and improving curricula and related practices.

     A.   For each Standard, please do the following:
           1) In the narrative, describe how the program is in compliance with the Standard. You may include checklists, rubrics and appendices as needed to document
              compliance. You may use a check  to indicate documents and/or evidence that are being submitted as part of the self study.

           2) Comment on the findings for each Standard:

                  Describe where the program shows exemplary commitment to students, the profession of interpretation, and is making a documented effort to cultivate an
                   environment of professionalism, teaching-and-learning, research, information sharing, and innovation.
                  If the program has identified an issue and is taking practical steps to address it, briefly describe the issue and the plans.
                  State actions or recommendations to address any areas of concern along with any additional background information to help CCIE’s Board of Commissioners
                   to fully understand the situation in the program and in making appropriate recommendations to achieve full compliance with the standard.
                  Use a check  to identify areas of grave concern that prevent the program from meeting the standard. If information in support of a Standard is missing,
                   please explain.

     B.   The CCIE Accreditation Team will rate each Standard the using the following scale:

            Meets the Standard: The program is meeting or exceeding all the elements required by the Standard.
            Partially Meets the Standard: The program is not currently meeting an element of the Standard, but the program has accurately identified the deficiencies and is
             taking steps to address meeting the Standard in an expeditious timeframe.
            Does Not Meet the Standard: The program currently is not meeting the requirements of the Standard, or insufficient or inadequate information is available to
             assess whether the program currently is in compliance with the Standard.
