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 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 for the the Aug. 27 webinar is quick and easy. Visit the APA accreditation webpage for the ARO to find other useful resources.

As of the end of July more than half of all accredited programs had started their ARO, and almost 10 percent had formally submitted their annual data. Unfortunately, the planned launch of the ARO Archives on the ARO webpage has been delayed. OPCA research staff are working hard with the vendor to expedite this functionality that would enable programs to edit their historical records as necessary. We realize that this is an inconvenience to programs and will do our best to take action as needed to ensure that programs have adequate time to submit an accurate and complete ARO. We will let program directors know when the archives are available. At any time, contact the OPCA research office with questions at (202) 336-6016.

CoA publishes annual summary data on doctoral, internship and postdoctoral residency programs. Reminder that annual summary data for 2012 will be published soon, but the 2012 ARO CoA Portal Survey results are now available on the APA accreditation website. Visit the ARO Statistics page for 2004-11 data and results from additional research requests.
