Online Teaching Course Accreditation Committee
These standards for accreditation of continuing education and training (e.g. TEFL, TESL, and TESOL, etc.) and high school or middle school curriculum (e.g. IB, AP, etc.) subject review courses have been approved by the membership of OTCAC. The OTCAC standards are interpreted and, thereby, operationalized through policies and procedures adopted by the Accreditation Committee under the Bylaws and, as such, are to be referenced in conjunction with these standards in evaluating the accreditability of institutions/organizations. OTCAC standards serve a number of functions, including:
The institution has a mission that is compatible with the OTCAC mission, scope, and standards.
The institution is capably and responsibly managed.
The institution’s curricular design, materials, and outcomes measurements follow sound educational practices.
