Discussions at the recent Council of Academic Programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CAPCSD) meeting in April, held in Albuquerque, served to confirm that the formative assessment requirements written into the new certification standards present numerous challenges to all training programs. While not discounting the efforts that will be required to meet the actual assessment aspects of the program, we projected that recordkeeping requirements may present a greater logistics concern to programs. When we began consideration of the new assessment standards at Portland State, we had already begun a project involving the development of an active Web site to handle much of the information management needs of the program. On analyzing the recordkeeping needs for meeting the new ASHA standards, we determined that incorporation of the assessment program into our Web-based management system seemed to be a very reasonable and useful solution. With this information management system, all data input and retrieval is conducted via web pages. The data driving the site are manipulated through a Web-based database system. Details on the dynamic Web program can be reviewed at http://oz.uc.edu/~martindg/ahsa2002. I have since moved to the University of Cincinnati where the program is currently being implemented.
