The Program Evaluation Standards and the Classroom Assessment Standards 10/26/2015
Free AaEA Lunchtime Webinar
October 26, 2015 12pm-1pm
Evaluators are faced with myriad choices as they design and implement evaluations. Which stakeholders must I absolutely have at the planning table? Will my budget accommodate that new qualitative software? Do I really need it?
The Program Evaluation Standards provide assistance in making those decisions, and they give us a framework for understanding just what constitutes a high quality evaluation in a given situation. In our October webinar, Paula Egelson will provide a brief overview of the Joint Committee on Standards for Educational Evaluation (JCSEE) standards development process and then will elaborate on the standards and how we can use them effectively. She will also cover the new classroom assessment standards and will briefly mention the personnel evaluation standards. While the Program Evaluation Standards were developed by the JCSEE, they are used throughout the field of evaluation, not just in education.
Dr. Paula Egelson is the director of research at the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) in Atlanta. Paula has an undergraduate degree in child development, a master’s degree in reading education, and a doctorate in educational leadership.
