Standards serve as the basis for any accreditor’s review.

The five CAEP Standards define quality in terms of organizational performance and serve as the basis for accreditation reviews and judgments.

These drivers of accreditation spring from a broad consensus across a very diverse group of stakeholders: providers, teachers, parents, critics, unions. They were also widely circulated and reviewed. 

The CAEP Standards reflect the voice of the education field – on what makes a quality educator.
