ADCES Favorably Reviewed Evaluation Process

The process begins with the submission of an application, application fee and samples of the product. Please allow 6 weeks for a complete review cycle. If changes are necessary, the applicant is notified and asked to make the changes for a second review by the evaluation team lead. 

It is strongly recommended that submitted products be in the early stages of revision as the materials review process is rigorous and thorough. 

In addition to reviewing and scoring your products based on set guidelines, the review team evaluates:

  • Accuracy of the diabetes information
  • Readability and grade level (using the SMOG readability scale)
  • Cultural, gender and body-type diversity
  • Appropriateness for target audience
