AALHE is a voice of assessment professionals at the regional and national levels. Several regional accrediting agencies report citation rates of 40% and higher on assessment standards. As assessment professionals, we know that myriad factors, including knowledge, practice, culture, standards, and individual differences may be contributing to this problem. This session will provide the AALHE Board of Directors with information you would like conveyed to leaders of the regional accrediting agencies regarding assessment expectations in the accreditation and reaffirmation processes. First, the presenter will guide small groups through discussions about their experiences writing self-studies, hosting site visits, responding to reports, and addressing concerns raised by peer review teams. Next, participants will divide into small groups of those having served and not having served as peer reviewers and respond to prompts about ways the regional accrediting agencies can better serve institutions. Results will be shared with participants and with the Board of Directors of AALHE.
