Conditional Case for Certification of Evaluators.
This paper reviews some of the literature related to evaluator certification programs and expresses a concern over the unilateral implementation of such a program by an evaluation organization like the American Evaluation Association. Such a move could lower the economic incentives that evaluators from developing countries would have to join their own regional or national evaluation organizations. This could delegitimize all of the other regional and national evaluations around the world and ultimately fragment the profession. The solution offered is for regional and national evaluation organizations to work together through the future International Organization for Cooperation in Evaluation to implement a certification or credentialing program collectively.
