Institutional Capacity Assessment Tool: Alignment to Accreditation

| Dr. Terri M Manning

Research & Reports
October 16, 2020

The ATD Institutional Capacity Assessment Tool (ICAT) helps colleges identify strengths and areas for improvement in light of best practices in seven key areas: 1) Leadership and Vision; 2) Data and Technology; 3) Equity; 4) Teaching and Learning; 5) Engagement and Communication; 6) Strategy and Planning; and 7) Policies and Practices.

The tool provides a structure for stakeholders from all areas of a college to collectively examine critical elements necessary to drive equitable student outcomes.
The ICAT also provides colleges with additional benefits related to their accreditation cycle. The seven regional accrediting agencies have some variation in accreditation standards or criteria but all have adopted a cycle or process (often referred to as “closing the loop”) for colleges to use through the self-study or compliance certification process.
