Application of the Joint Committee Standards as Criteria for Evaluations in Louisiana.
Hoffman, Lee McGraw
In 1981 the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education established regulations of quality assurance for educational program evaluations conducted in the state through two major areas: the certification of educational program evaluators and the use of the Joint Committee's Standards for Evaluation, Projects and Materials in the evaluations themselves. This paper discusses the issues that must be faced in developing an application mechanism, and in articulating the relationship between the certification of evaluators and quality assurance of evaluations. The role of the State Department of Education (SDE) and certified educators in the quality assurance effort in providing technical assistance and training in evaluation skills is also discussed. The role of the state in developing and disseminating models or guidance for local school systems is considered. The guidelines for implementing application of the Standards will be developed by the SDE Bureau of Evaluation in 1982. (PN)
