Each September, we submit a progress report on each of our Action Projects to the Higher Learning Commission
. These reports include: progress made based on timelines, goals and measures, and problems and challenges in which we encountered outstanding successes and discoveries made. The Systems Appraisal process involves five or more reviewers trained by the Higher Learning Commission
that review the institution’s Systems Portfolio
. This team of reviewers will produce an Appraisal Feedback Report that assesses the maturity of, and identifies strengths and opportunities for improvement within, each of the AQIP 9 characteristics. This Systems Appraisal will occur within the 8-10 weeks following submission of our Systems Portfolio.
