3 Introduction The American Council on Education (ACE) is the major coordinating body for all the nation s higher education institutions. As part of its mission, ACE is committed to supporting the advancement of continuing adult education through the Center for Lifelong Learning. One way in which the Center addresses this objective is through the College Credit Recommendation Service (CREDIT), a program that bridges the gap between workplace learning and institutions of higher education. For more than 30 years, CREDIT has reviewed the adult learning programs offered by all manner of organizations, from businesses and unions to the government and military. The credit recommendations based on those reviews have given adult learners the opportunity to gain academic credit for courses taken outside the traditional university classroom. The CREDIT recommendation carries benefits for each of the program s three participants: For the Organization Validates the quality of training being offered through the organization. Motivates employees and shows organizational commitment to their personal goals. Increases employee loyalty. For the Adult Learner Enables faster attainment of educational and career goals. Increases ability to complete postsecondary credentials. Improves workplace mobility. For the Postsecondary Institution Improves access to new, highly motivated learners. Promotes consistent quality, less duplication, and lower costs in the student assessment process. Improves links to the business community and government agencies. An ACE CREDIT course review evaluation is a thorough process that stresses academically sound methods to ensure that all ACE CREDIT-approved courses offer consistent, high-quality educational opportunities to all adult learners. The commitment to academic integrity begins with the reviewers, all of whom are specialists in the subject matter being taught. Reviewers are typically faculty members of colleges and universities and are chosen for their training and experience in the subject matter as well as their knowledge of curricula and instructional methods. The rigor with which each review is conducted and the experience and integrity of the review teams have resulted in responsible and appropriate recommendations. These have been fundamental to ACE CREDIT s reputation with higher education institutions throughout the United States. The formal recognition of ACE CREDIT recommendations for an organization s training courses not only helps establish a solid reputation for academic rigor, but also gives the organization the edge that a highly trained and well-educated workforce provides in today s increasingly knowledgebased economy.

4 Overview of the Course Review Process Course evaluation reviews usually are conducted at the location of the organization offering the courses. Following the evaluation, review team members determine the level of credit and number of hours that each course warrants. Credit-level recommendations are made in four basic categories: Vocational certificate. Lower-division baccalaureate/ associate degree. Upper-division baccalaureate degree. Graduate degree. To arrive at these the recommendations, team members consider a number of relevant factors, including: Course content. Learning outcomes. Level of difficulty. Evaluation methods (tests, papers, presentations, etc.). Instructional staff qualifications. Quality of instructional materials. The review process consists of three phases: review preparation, review day, and postreview. These three phases are discussed at greater length in the sections that follow. Review Preparation Client Responsibilities Step 1. Review Criteria for Eligibility to Participate The Criteria for Eligibility to Participate document will provide you with an overview of the areas of assessment that will be addressed in a CREDIT evaluation. Step 2. Identify Courses to Be Reviewed Once it is determined that your organization s educational program is compatible with the standards of the Criteria for Eligibility to Participate and would benefit from an ACE CREDIT course evaluation, you should decide which courses you would like to have reviewed and submit a concise description of each to ACE CREDIT. Such a description should include course duration, learning objectives, target audience, instructor qualifications, and a syllabus. Based on these descriptions, the CREDIT Content Review Committee (CCRC) will determine the disciplines from which the evaluation team should be drawn and the number of team members required. The CCRC also will consider whether a review is an appropriate process for both the course provider and ACE CREDIT. For instance, for courses that seem too limited in scope or complexity to have a successful review outcome, the committee may request additional information from the course provider or notify the organization of its concerns prior to proceeding further.

5 Step 3. Submit the Necessary Forms and Fees (All forms are included in the appendices of this handbook.) After the committee has determined the number of evaluators necessary for your review, you will receive a cost proposal estimating the total review costs. If you decide to move forward with the review, return a signed cost proposal with the application fee. This fee will be applied to the cost of a site visit by an ACE CREDIT National Coordinator. Draft an organization description and complete the required ACE CREDIT Course Information Questionnaire, prepare course displays and attach all course syllabi, and submit them to CREDIT at least three weeks prior to the site visit. The site visit will take place approximately three to four weeks prior to the course evaluation team visit. Using the standards from the Criteria, the coordinator will substantiate the readiness of the organization to be evaluated, view the course administrative and delivery venues, gain a broader understanding of the relationship of the courses to the organization, identify for the organization circumstances or concerns that may be addressed prior to the review, and answer questions the organization may have regarding preparation for the review itself. Please note: The National Coordinator is not an evaluative member or a subject-matter specialist for your organization s review. He or she has broad expertise in curricular assessment and instructional methods and represents ACE CREDIT as a facilitator for the team. Additionally, his or her role is to ensure the integrity of the evaluation throughout the review process as well as to report the outcome of the review to the organization and to ACE. Step 4. Finalize Logistics for the Review, Distribute Materials to the Review Team, and Remit Fixed Fees Following a successful site visit: Assemble one copy of materials for each course, including texts, instructor s manuals, course handouts, participant projects (when appropriate), sample evaluation instruments, final examinations, and any other relevant materials. Make all the necessary logistical arrangements for review day, including arranging for a room large enough to accommodate those attending the presentations and the team conducting the review. Arrange for a computer (with staff assistance to enter data) and LCD panel for a PowerPoint presentation as well as other necessary equipment, such as a TV and VCR as appropriate. Finalize travel, meal, and overnight accommodation details for review teams where necessary. Prepare a 15-minute presentation on the administration of the education and training program. The presentation should be designed to familiarize the review team with the organization and the relationship of the program to the organization. At least three weeks prior to review, submit a check or purchase order covering the fixed cost for your review.

6 Review Day Client Responsibilities At the review, the following steps need to be taken: Present a 15-minute overview of your program and its administration. Arrange for key staff members to be available either in person or by telephone to answer questions that may arise during the review. Participate in a question-and-answer session with the reviewers. All course materials need to be on display on Review Day. If there are multiple sections of a course, complete materials must be provided for each section. The following items must be included: Complete information for course review forms. One syllabus for each course. If different sections of the same course use variations, then a copy of each syllabus must be included. All textbooks. Any audio or visual aids used in the course. Instructor s manual and information regarding its use. Course participant s manuals, workbooks, and handouts. Examinations, quizzes, criteria used for oral presentations, and the criteria used by instructors to measure outcomes. Examples of projects, if applicable. A description of the required qualifications of course instructors and the procedures used for their selection. Names, positions, qualifications, and résumés of all instructors. A description of the procedures used for reviewing instructor performance. A description of the required qualifications and selection procedures for any course mentors and resource staff that may be used for the course. One hard copy per review team member of all displays (see Appendix 4) for courses being reviewed. A complete computerized version of all course displays for use by the National Coordinator. Please Note: Insufficient access to the course materials noted above can lead to delays in the course evaluation process or to the failure of a course to receive college credit recommendations. Post-review Once a course has received a positive review assessment and college credit recommendation, the following steps will help ensure that the organization offering the course can take full advantage of the benefits that the ACE CREDIT validation provides: Proofread the course display to verify that all course information is correct, then sign and return it for publication in ACE s electronic National Guide to College Credit for Workforce Training (found at nationalguide). Enroll all successful course participants in the ACE Transcript Service to provide a permanent, official record.
