Self Study Report

Preparation and submission of the Self Study Report (SSR) is a requirement for an education program prior to an accreditation review. It is due five months prior to the onsite visit. Most education programs report that they require approximately a year to compile and format the information required for submission.

The main purpose of the SSR is to provide an opportunity for the education program to:
  • provide evidence about the program's compliance with
    accreditation standards,
  • systematically review the program and assess its outcomes,
  • identify areas of strength, and
  • identify areas where strategies may need to be developed to improve or maintain program quality.
Guidelines and the required format for preparation of the SSR are provided in the Program Accreditation Handbook. Please contact amanda.walton@otapta.ca with any additional questions.

Submission of the SSR must also include required forms and documentation described in the Self Study Inventory (SSI).
