2013 Annual Report Online

ARO open for accredited programs.

The 2013 Annual Report Online (ARO) opened on May 13, 2013.  The Office of Program Consultation and Accreditation (OPCA) Research staff will broadcast live webinars at 3:30 p.m. EDT on Aug. 21 and at 11 a.m. EDT on Aug. 27. Any program staff, faculty/supervisors or administrators who want to participate in data entry training and discover what's new in the ARO may attend a webinar. Questions will be answered live. Registration is quick and easy; register for the Aug. 21 webinar or the Aug. 27 webinar. Visit the APA accreditation webpage for the ARO to find other useful resources.

Program directors of doctoral programs can now view their 2010-2012 Threshold Summary Reports in the CoA Portal on the Dashboard tab, under Reports. This might also be a good time to review staff permissions in the portal as well as add staff accounts for program staff that need portal access to manage your program's ARO data. The staff account provides permission and access to download the program's confidential data. Please disable any staff accounts for staff that no longer need access to the portal. At any time, contact the OPCA Research office with questions at (202) 336-6016.

The 2012 ARO CoA Portal Survey results will soon be available on the APA accreditation website. Thank you to all of the programs that chose to participate in last year's survey! The Commission on Accreditation (CoA) has used the feedback to implement several changes to the CoA Portal this year.
