Eval11 Session 204: The International Response to the Canadian Evaluation Society's (CES) Professional Designations Program 

11-13-2011 20:11

The CES Professional Designation process is the first established program in the world by a professional association to credential evaluators, an important next step in evaluation's continuing development as a profession. Jean King, one of the authors of the Essential Competencies for Program Evaluators upon which the CES credentialing is based, will reflect on this development. First, she will ground the work in the context of the historical development of credentials, tracing the origin of licensure in three other professions (law, medicine, and accounting) where the paths to licensure and accreditation of training programs provide counterpoint to current CES work. Second, she will reflect on the international implications of the CES Professional Designation work, including reactions from South Africa where there is governmental pressure to move toward licensure and the USA where the American Evaluation Association, after a gap of over a decade, is again discussing the possibility of an evaluator credential. Presentation by Jean A King, University of Minnesota, kingx004@umn.edu.
