Index of Education Quality® (IEQ®)
AdvancED Accreditation is not about earning a label for a one-time evaluation. Rather, it recognizes and supports the journey of continuous improvement. The Index of Education Quality® (IEQ®) is a formative measure for placement on a continuum of performance, pinpointing areas of success as well as areas in need of support and/or focus.
The Index of Education Quality provides a holistic measure of overall performance. By basing the score on data aggregated from each AdvancED Standard and diagnostic results from student, parent and staff/teacher surveys, the IEQ framework recognizes and supports the whole continuous improvement journey. Each institution's IEQ provides a benchmark to assess and guide future decisions.
By analyzing the components of an IEQ score, an institution can focus their attention and actions on activities and systems that optimize learning for all students.
