CSU, Chico Evidence Reporting
On January 20, 2005, the WASC Steering Committee invited more than one hundred members of the campus community to share their expert judgment on how the campus could / should demonstrate its capacity to define and sustain learning and educational effectiveness. In particular, the one hundred members were organized into seventeen teams and asked to identify what evidence and / or data currently existed that could / should be used to demonstrate that CSU, Chico met the broad statement of the new WASC Standard and its related Criteria for Review assigned to their respective team. Once having identified the evidence or data, teams were asked to evaluate the quality of evidence or data identified and recommend whether improvements in existing data were needed and/or whether other data, documentation or processes needed to be developed.
Summaries of the work/products of the seventeen teams have been organized around the four Accreditation Standards and their related criteria for review. For each Standard, the summary highlights the links to evidence and related topics. When viewed as a holistic system of review, the evidence summaries begin to demonstrate that at CSU, Chico there is a strong commitment to Institutional Capacity and that we are ready to engage in addressing the key issues and challenges that the review process has identified.
