A brief description of the institution’s assurance process:

After each credit was ready for review, the Responsible Party completes a self-check of the credit for completion, accuracy, and to ensure that common issues outlined by AASHE have been addressed. Then, an internal reviewer (“Reviewer #1”) -- who was not directly involved in the data collection process for that credit -- completes an additional review for completion, accuracy, and to check for common issues. They also have the option to include comments and suggestions for improvement. After this step, the Responsible Party has an opportunity to respond, addressing all suggestions and comments. After that, an additional internal reviewer (“Reviewer #2”) -- who was not directly involved in the data collection process for that credit -- completes an additional review for completion, accuracy, and to check for common issues. After this step, the Responsible Party has one more opportunity to respond, addressing all suggestions and comments and then the credit is marked complete.

UCI found the internal review process to be very effective in identifying issues, determining areas for improvement, and making revisions in order for credits to satisfy STARS criteria.
