Implementation of the Certification of Louisiana Educational Evaluators Using the Joint Committee Standards.
Triplett, Suzanne E.
The Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education has adopted the following quality assurance and control policies for education program evaluation in Louisiana: (1) anyone who accepts and executes responsibility for planning, conducting and reporting evaluations of educational programs, projects, and materials approved by the State Board and for which evaluations are required must have a valid Louisiana program evaluator's certificate; and (2) the evaluations of educational programs, projects, and materials approved by the State Board must meet the State Board-adopted standards for educational evaluations. The certification of evaluators is administered in the same manner through which other education professionals are certified in Louisiana. The certification criteria present minimum education, experience and training requirements for two levels of evaluators, including the completion of a State Department inservice training program on the Standards for the Evaluation of Educational Programs, Projects and Materials. As the first state to implement a certification requirement for evaluators, Louisiana has had to address several concerns: identification of evaluators, qualifications for evaluators, qualifications for certification, licensing exams, the Standards as an element of certification, and implementing a "grandfather clause."
