The Assessment and Accreditation Management System (AAMS) was developed by AACP with collaboration from the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) to assist member schools and colleges of pharmacy with their assessment and accreditation-related activities.
A knowledge base (KB) library is a self serve online library used to share information about a product or service. The AAMS KB library utilizes articles, visuals, videos, and step-by-step instructions on using AAMS and its features.
AAMS consists of the following 6 tabs:
- Profile: An institution's school profile, including contact information.
- Assessment Tools: A benchmarking platform to produce peer comparison reports.
- Self Study: An institution's self-study report for accreditation purposes.
- Compliance Status: Compliance Decisions made by the institution and ACPE.
- Users: There are 2 user types, school administrators and school users, for each institution.
- Documents: Platform to save documents in the system to use in the Self Study.
Prior to 2016, our institution used AAMS 1.0 (Standards 2007) to submit our self-study report. Did this data get transferred to the current AAMS 2.0 upon its release?
- Administrative data required within the rubric for Standards 2016 from AACP surveys does populate in the new AAMS. However, any documents or information inputted into the Self Study or the Program Assessment section of AAMS 1.0 did not get transferred over due to the new system being built according to Standards 2016 and not Standards 2007. Institution's would have been responsible for saving all, or any, data from AAMS 1.0 prior to system retirement.
I searched the AAMS KB library but still have questions, who can I contact?
