The Local School District's View of Evaluator Certification.
Ashburn, Arnold G.
The basic contention of this paper is that certification of educational evaluation personnel offers definite advantages to school districts and that these advantages tend to outweigh the disadvantages. The state board of education should be the final authority for certification, but multi-institutional involvement in designing and operating accredited programs is desirable. Certification would serve the interest of school districts best if it provided for substantial participation by school districts and the profession in the training and certification processes, if the certification involved multiple levels, required periodic updating, and were based on proficiency levels. All of the possible problem areas are surmountable, but not easily so. Probably the most critical problem area is the developmental need to place certification on a sound proficiency basis. (Author)
