Educational measurement or educational evaluation is the evaluation process of characterizing and appraising some aspect of the education enterprise.

Standards for educational evaluationEdit

The Joint Committee on Standards for Educational Evaluation published three sets of standards for educational evaluations. The Personnel Evaluation Standards [1] was published in 1988, The Program Evaluation Standards (2nd edition) [2] was published in 1994, and The Student Evaluations Standards [3] was published in 2003.

Each publication presents and elaborates a set of standards for use in a variety of educational settings. The standards provide guidelines for designing, implementing, assessing and improving the identified form of evaluation. Each of the standards has been placed in one of four fundamental categories to promote evaluations that are proper, useful, feasible, and accurate.

The Personnel Evaluation StandardsEdit

educational personnel can be assessd with regard to their performance for example to ensure that they meet minimal competency standards

  • The propriety standards require that evaluations be conducted legally, ethically, and with due regard for the welfare of evaluatees and clients involved in.
  • The utility standards are intended to guide evaluations so that they will be informative, timely, and influential.
  • The feasibility standards call for evaluation systems that are as easy to implement as possible, efficient in their use of time and resources, adequately funded, and viable from a number of other standpoints.
  • The accuracy standards require that the obtained information be technically accurate and that conclusions be linked logically to the data.

The Program Evaluation StandardsEdit

  • The accuracy standards are intended to ensure that an evaluation will reveal and convey technically adequate information about the features that determine worth or merit of the program being evaluated.
