In addition, via audits of evaluations performed by staff, there will be a 96% accuracy rating in the evaluations (reviews) of applications for licensure.  Overall, DESE has met and even exceeded our goal. During peak period,  turnaround time has been one week. During much of the non-peak period, a majority of applicants experience a 1-2 day (or less) turnaround time to have an application evaluated from the time that it is “ready for review.” On the quality/accuracy side, 431 spot checks were completed with 422 being accurate for a rating of 98%.
