Benefits of the NADE Certification Process: Self-Knowledge, Informed Choices & Programmatic Strength
Greci, Dana
NADE Digest, v9 n1 p2-5 Win 2016
Research shows that systematic, ongoing program evaluation is needed to adequately assess the effectiveness of developmental programs. Ongoing evaluation provides both (1) validation of programs to educational institutions and legislators; and (2) impetus for program improvement. The author of this article works in the Developmental Education Department at University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF), where he recently coordinated the department's National Association of Developmental Education (NADE) certification program evaluation. Becoming NADE certified was an incredible learning process that produced fruits beyond what ever could have been imagined when they were starting out. Both in terms of professional development for faculty and the development of a stronger program for students, going through the NADE certification process was indispensable. This article looks as the process and the benefits of NADE certification.
