This handbook is primarily for the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) auditor. It is intended to help in preparing for audits of "Inquiry Briefs" and "Inquiry Brief Proposals" and to contribute to the writing of the audit report. This handbook contains a full description of the audit process, the responsibilities of the program and TEAC staff, and auditors' responsibilities. It also provides guidelines for making audit decisions and developing the audit opinion. In addition, it includes an array of audit tools: documents and templates that will be used in each audit. This handbook begins with ten principles that describe the qualities of a TEAC auditor and can serve to guide auditors in their role and responsibilities. Following that introduction, the guide has four parts. Part One describes the TEAC audit in detail. It outlines the particular responsibilities of the program, TEAC staff, and the auditors and explains each phase of the audit. Part Two provides information and guidance on making decisions. Part Three contains the audit tools auditors will use before, during, and after the audit including the TEAC Accreditation Framework for both teacher education and educational leadership programs, templates for the Summary of the Case and the parity and capacity tables, and information about writing findings to audit tasks. Part Four covers practical matters such as schedule and costs and addresses the most frequent questions auditors have about their work.
