Post-visit Activities of Evaluation Team
The Evaluation Team will submit its evaluation report to the BAETE Registrar within three (3) weeks of the visit. In finalizing its report with findings and recommendations, the Evaluation Team may consider additional submissions requested from the institution during the on-site visit. The Evaluation Team will make a holistic quality judgment of each criterion against the benchmark requirements stipulated in this manual in terms of compliance, concern, weakness and deficiency. These terms are defined as follows.
Compliance: A criterion, policy, or procedure has adequately satisfied the benchmark requirements stipulated in the manual. No corrective measure is required to strengthen compliance prior to the next review.
Concern: A criterion, policy, or procedure is broadly in compliance but requires improvement to avoid compromising the quality of the program or is currently in compliance but the potential exists for the situation to change, resulting in future non-compliance. Progress on the corrective measures is required prior to the next review.
Weakness: A criterion, policy, or procedure lacks compliance, compromising the quality of the program. Corrective measures are required to strengthen compliance prior to the next review.
Deficiency: A criterion, policy, or procedure either does not exist or is in the elementary stage. Compliance is required.
The findings and recommendations of the Evaluation Team must be supported with evidence. Although the Evaluation Team should not prescribe the details of the corrective measures to be taken, some broad-level recommendations and suggestions are required. The evaluation report may briefly highlight the strengths of the program and the institution as encouragement and in recognition of good practices.
