CAS has developed 45 sets of functional area standards for higher education programs and services. Pre-order the CAS Professional Standards for Higher Education book (August 2015, 9th edition), which includes general standards for practice and functional area standards, from the Online Store. CAS has updated all functional area standards and accompanying self-assessment guides (SAGs); in addition, several standards have been significantly revised. The 2015 SAGs, which include a revised structure and rating scale, provide individuals and institutions with means for assessing program and service effectiveness based on the standards.
