ACPE needed a web-based solution to support colleges and schools of pharmacy in their ongoing work in programmatic assessment and to assist them in the preparation and submission of their self-study and other reports required by the accreditation process for each institution. The software needed to increase efficiency and provide consistency of the accreditation process for those being reviewed as well as for those involved in the evaluation process.
The Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education was established over 80 years ago as an independent accreditation agency for colleges and schools of pharmacy. It is recognized by the US Department of Education as the sole quality assurance agency for the Doctor of Pharmacy degree program. ACPE also accredits providers of continuing pharmacy education.
An All-Inclusive Programmatic Assessment Solution
Virtual Atlantic built a highly dynamic system that allows schools to create multiple self-assessments for themselves. Each assessment is divided into 25 “standards,” which each receive their own individual grade or score. Many of the standards contain real-time information pulled from outside data sources. The system also contains a document management system, messaging system, a complex set of benchmarking tools, and a permissions module that allows AACP to create their own user types with custom permissions.
