S1414 Oct 16 2014 0445pm rm113 The Global Evolution of Evaluator Competencies and the Professionalization of Evaluation in VOPE  

10-14-2014 21:04

Across the world, VOPEs are addressing their diverse evaluation practice through the development of evaluator competency frameworks. These competencies are being used for different purposes depending on their context from guidelines to inform professional development to a foundation for professional designation programs. Panellists from Australia, the United States, and Canada with diverse evaluation practices (internal/external evaluators, academics, educators, credentialing board members, evaluation users, etc.) examine their experiences with developing and using competencies. What critical role did the development of evaluator competencies have in the professionalization of evaluation in their context? Have perspectives evolved? The collaborative nature of the evaluator competency development process is reflected by bringing in broadest perspectives of the various views that exist, the contentiousness and how these issues were handled in the process. By sharing our experiences we hope to encourage VOPEs to strengthen evaluation capacity and contribute to a Visionary Evaluation for a Sustainable, Equitable Future.
